Some more floss dyeing...
I went ahead and dyed the rest of that "garage sale" floss last week. I did not keep track of color numbers and I didn't get a photo before but the outcome is luscious!
I just love how these turn out and it is so much FUN!!! I would encourage you to try this. See my earlier post with link.
I am now going to do this more methodically. I am going to do like 6 of each of a few colors at a time so I can keep track of the befores and afters. I think I have plenty of pinks/reds for now and plan on doing some blues and greens next.
Progress on my recent start...
I am loving BBD's "Awake the Dawning Day". However, I must admit I almost quit while working the letters. I was getting a little bored. As soon as I started with the flower pot and worked up, adding new colors, it came to life. I love the colors and these pictures won't do it justice.
A little shopping...
Last Tuesday, I went along with my friend, Joan, on a little field trip. We drive to Osage, Iowa, (approx. 2 hours SW) to meet WendyJo, (who drove approx. 3 hours NW). I wasn't able to go last time Joan met up with her so I was excited to go this time. It was a small little town but right on Main St. was a large cross stitch store and a quilt store. And in between was a pub and grille that was very good. We spent about 4 hours there between the 3 establishments and had a great time. It was very nice to meet WendyJo in person. I wasn't smart enough to bring my camera and have been waiting for the others to post so I could "borrow" theirs but they haven't done so yet. You will have to watch their blogs for a picture. We plan on meeting again at possibly some different venues. Thank you Joan and WendyJo for a lovely day!
UPDATE: Here is a picture of us in the quilting store!
Over the weekend I ran to a local quilt store to pick up a pattern I had ordered and ran into a couple of other treasures I had to have. One of which was this...
Isn't she cute! Being it was Easter, I had to have it. Besides, they only had 1 left so I think it was meant to be.
I think that's about it for now. Thanks for visiting and I appreciate all of the wonderful comments.
Happy Stitching :)
