So some stuff to share! Some of it was from a week or so ago but wanted to save it to make a longer post!
So first things first…
I made it to The Silver Needle and finally got myself some Ink Circles!
The store was amazing, I probably should have taken pictures. They had stitched works EVERYWHERE to tempt you. So many times pics don’t capture how nice finished pieces are so seeing stitched items is really nice.
I have some awesome plans for the Dragons of Sumatra! As soon as I get the fabric and floss I’ll definitely show them off. I already know the colors I want.
Next up, I picked up a pack of tensioners from Heaven and Earth Designs. I love the color and was super happey they were able to send one of the colors I said were my preference.
I did want to show them off in use but I have my silk on linen project on it now and it’s just too close to the edge to work. Once I can use them I’ll get a pic.
Another HAED purchase. They’re resin and really pretty. The little one is my favorite, I think it’s super cute.
It’s little, and cute, and I like how the color is on it.
But, and it pains me to say this because I’m a HUGE HAED fan. The sides on the back are not flush.
I don’t think they will snag but wish they were more flush/smooth. I might try filing it down a bit. It’s a personal preference and probably would not affect use. And I definitely plan to use them.
And now my favorite things!
I managed to snag two lots of five Fiberlicious skeins. First the cotton…
I love the middle and right a lot. No clue what I’ll use them for, but I love them.
And some of the prettiest floss I’ve seen in my life…
I love them. I love all of them! And I’ll admit it, I pick favorites. The two on the right… first one is called Clown and the other is Her Majesty…
I’m buying more. Not sure how much of clown but Her Majesty will be quite a few. This is the prettiest nicest feeling silk I’ve ever seen.
I had actually been eyeballing another color on that site and I’m making the jump. *of course I’ll post when I get it* pictures absolutely do not do this justice!
I do have a few more things coming in and once I have a few I’ll be making another post!
Probably expect up next a Burgundy Sampler update. Also fabric shopping, not sure if I’ll post on that… but maybe, I need a few more swatches.
