I was high bidder for The Spirit of Christmas today.... and I ordered skeins of Caron Waterlilies in Iced Lavender and Avalon as well... Stitching Bits & Bobs is having another sale so I grabbed them there.
I received my first FOTM order from Dyeing4U today - I received two fat quarters of belfast linen - one in Cameo Peach and one in Morning Dream. They are pretty, but I am not sure I have anything that Cameo Peach will work with. I am not big on pastels. You take that chance with FOTM clubs. Maybe I will hold on to it for a while and see what comes along, or I will put it on my trade list over at Fiberswappers or post it on ebay... or if any of my blog readers are interested in trading for it... cool. It's truly pretty, just not my taste. I believe the Morning Dream will work well with some of the L&L angels I have lined up.... I have been wanting a pale blue or pale lavender for one or two of them anyhow :-) ...I also received the Jill Oxton's Cross Stitch & Beading Issue No. 43 from ebay today... love those Australian charts in this one.
Isn't this pretty? It is a Marjolein Bastin freebie that I will be receiving soon by way of Australia :-) BH&G Magazine in Australia had it to offer - I am looking forward to this one :-)
Red Sox 6, Devil Rays 2 - and a great start for Matt Clement tonight :-) Not to mention Manny Ramirez! It is safe to say he is out of his slump now with this back to back homeruns, the second of which was a Grand Slam :-) He provided all six RBIs for the Red Sox tonight!
Wonder how they figured this one out - all they asked was what color undies am I wearing?? I said black and grey tiger print hipsters by Victoria's Secret - so they made me brown?? ROTFL!
