On Thursday we went up to Dragonfly Dreams (my LNS) where I spent all of my garage sale and Christmas money on a tidy little stash. I now have all the fabric for my major projects and I have most of threads for them. I have decided to try my hand at stitching on some 36ct and 40ct fabric with one over one. Maybe a little ambitious, but I may as well while my eyesight is still good. Hahaha!
So here is what I purchased, Mill Hill beads, Kreinik blending filament, Whisper thread and beautiful Midnight Blue 32ct linen all for my Winter Angel design.
Thread Gatherer Silk'N'Colours thread and Needlepoint Silks and some 36ct and 40ct linen in antique white and cream for my Black Willow Farm and Pumpkin Farm projects.
Heaps of Gentle Art Sampler Threads, Weeks Dye Works threads and some 32ct linen for my 12 Blessings of Christmas project.
Finally, I also purchased some Q-Snaps, thread heaven and some Dinky Dye threads for my Scissor Fob Exchange and the next Fair and Square Round. Karen also very kindly threw in some complimentary patterns from Rosewood Manor and Blackbird Designs.
I can now show you the completed pendibulles I finished for my Grandmothers. I filled them each with lavender, so they can use them to scent their cupboards. I also started another little project on boxing day. This was a very lazy afternoon of eating, a little bush walking and more eating.
My little angel has been sick over the last few weeks. She had a fever and cold a week before Christmas, was well for about five days and now has another fever and cold, although today she seems much better. In addition to this, her whole routine has been thrown out as we have house guests and I think she is struggling with having strangers in the house. I am really looking forward to everything going back to normal.
Finally, I have had quite a lot of interest in the Lavender & Lace SAL. We will be starting on the weekend of the 26th and 27th of January and then be stitching one day a week from then on. If there is anyone interested in joining, please visit Lavender Angel Stitch-A-Long for more details.
