Shop With Me 4-19-19

This week has been super busy so unfortunately no real update on my Burgundy Sampler.

Got a few cool things to share though!

Let’s start strong. Got some more Hand Dyed by Rolanda silk floss. Love the colors and felt like I definitely needed it.

I actually ended up getting some 28 ct dyed fabric from her as well.

It’s a beautiful deep red. I did originally have a plan for it but it isn’t quite big enough for 2 over one and I’m not sure I want to do over one. I’ll definitely be trying to find something for it and may end up requesting a custom piece that is big enough.

Kind of carring on the fabric show off.

Grabbes this from the Mystic Fabrics Facebook page. I just felt like I needed a brown. It’s another not sure what I’m doing with it but I love it lol.

Grabbed these two charts. I actually think that blue would look nice on that Black Cauldron Dyeworks fabric I got back at The Silver Needle.

There’s just a reminder pic. I think those blues will really pop and the fabric will be a nice background to it. The second chart I have no plans for, I just randomly claimed it, because why not.

And as always my big purchase last, although my floss and fabrics are hard to beat this thing is just cool.

I managed to get a Monopoly chart! Super excited to do this. I actually want to do some custom ones.

I am planning to stay in and stitch tomorrow so hopefully there will be some stitching update soon too!

Shop With Me 4-2-2019 and Update!

Lots for this week… you’ve been warned lol.

First, a quick update on The Burgundy Sampler.

I love how it looks. I can’t wait to see more of it appear as I work on it.

Also kind of a sad little update. You remember the silk floss I got and LOVED?

Fiberlicious stated that it’s their silk filament that’s not sold any more. I’m going to have to hoard these for something special.

Now moving on to the new stuff!

I saw this pattern on Just Add Needles Facebook page and had to order it. It’s my first non English pattern but it’s easy enough to tell what it says when it comes to size and basic info. I already have an idea of the colors I’m going to use for it. Most likely I’ll probably go with cream and red, kind of a reverse of the pic.

Next up just a couple of fabrics I grabbed from a destash group. Not sure what I’ll use them for but I loves the colors.

I also grabbed this from the destash group. I love how simple it is and the colors used. I’ll probably try to make it as close to the picture. It is for a pin pillow but I might just stitch it for the design and instead of sewing fabric to the middle, I’ll just stitch a blue rectangle there instead.

Now my favorite things… that’s not fair, I love that pattern. But my other favorite things lol.

First I got this turquoise silk floss. I’ll be using it for one of my Ink Circles patterns. This was bought with a specific pattern in mind.

Now this was picked because I love it. It was limited edition and so I bought the last 10. Not sure what I’ll be using it on but it will be a special pattern.

Fell in love with this color and stocked up as well. No specific project in mind for this either, but I’ve got my eye out looking for something. I do have fabric I think would look good with it though, so this one is kind of just needing the right pattern.

I know I just had one but I had to go back! Buckle in, this one is a lot longer.

First, to get it out of the way up front, I gave in.

I had to have it.

I also grabbed these two. They’re both really appealing because I feel like I could do either with one color and these will be my easier side projects. I think I’ll start with The Burgundy Sampler first, it’s small and I think I’m going to do it to learn over two stitching on linen. Maybe with the piece from yesterday? Not sure, I love it and may want to save that until I’m a bit more experienced.

I grabbed some silk floss. I love the purples and really want to use it on one of these projects where I just use one color, but again, I really love this and might save it until I’m a little more experiences. In total I got 7 of these.

I grabbed a half yard of this brown which I really liked. I really want to do an Ink Circles pattern with brown fabric and turquoise floss, so maybe use this?

I also grabbed this, it’s a little fabric bundle with 4 fabrics in them. It was only $5 and all the fabrics felt better than aida, so I wanted these for smaller one off projects.

First it had a light grey-blue color. Not my favorite but I can definitely find something to do with it.

It also has this darker blue which I really like, but am not sure what kind of pattern or color I want to use on it.

This one is kind of hard to see but its a really pretty creamy color. I will definitely use it but want to find some colors to really pop on it.

Aside from the ivory this is my favorite one. Its a really rich brown color with a bit of a red tint to it. I didn’t buy any but I held some DMC 955 to it and it was gorgeous. That’s probably the color of floss I want used on it. Need to pick a pattern though.

I went to Get Stitchin’ again and loved it just like yesterday.

Tulsa does have some other stores but the hours most are open are kind of hard to work around with a weekday daytime job. Many close at 5-6 and all of them are closed on Sundays.

I did try to swing by A Silver Needle yesterday, which from what I’ve read is kind of a destination cross stitch store, but it randomly had a please come back later sign even though they were suppose to be open so I wasn’t able to check it out. I do hope to visit a couple of the other stores, it will just take some planning. Some of the next Shop With Mes might end up being digital shops though, so just a heads up there.

Shop With Me!

Decided to check out a little local shop. Called Get Stitchin’.

They are mainly a yarn shop for crochet and knitting. Lots of amazing yarns and tools. Saw some really nice crochet needles and even a line counter ring. *forgot to take pics*

But I was there mainly to see cross stitch stuff. They had quite a few patterns.

I saw these two that I really loved but ended up not buying, I may head back when I have more time to go through stuff. They were beautiful patterns but weren’t what I was really looking for.

I ended up not buying any patterns but did pick up a really pretty half yard length of osnaburg fabric.

I really love the natural look of this fabric. I was originally wanting to find a nice chocolate colored fabric but ended up not liking the two they had there. One was almost kind of a reddish and the other was really stiff, like aida, and just wasn’t something I wanted to stitch on.

I hope to go back soon and hopefully buy more stuff when I have more time to hang out and really go through all the patterns they have available.
