Ah, internet is functioning again :-)


Our internet is not up and running tonight (Wednesday) - I will edit in my WIP pic (Celtic Winter) when I get home tonight (Thursday). ****OK, I wrote that at work today :-) Here is what I got done last night on Celtic Winter... I wonder if it shows up in the pic after Blogger does its thing to it. I worked on white and pale blue in her skirt... she moves along so nicely :-)

I received a fat quarter of Honeydew 32 ct lugana by Dyeing4U from ebay today... it reminds me of Zweigart's Ray of Light. I think it might be greener. I might resell or trade it if I can't find a project for it :-)

I contacted European Cross Stitch, and they say they are not including Nymo in their Mystery IX kits because they have no Nymo color that matches the Lavender Bliss belfast. However, they are going to send me some white to see if I like it. I probably will just use DMC, as there is a shade in the 3700 range that matches the fabric quite well. (Heather asked what Nymo is - Nymo is a thread used for beading that is made of what?? Um, nylon is the best word that comes to mind....).

Hmmm... my FOTM from Silkweaver still is not here... seems to be late every month now. Maybe it is because my new option is scheduled to ship the first Friday of each month... it just seems to take forever to get here :-(

Stitched on today: Celtic Winter and 17th Century Irish Garden for a little while at work - finally!

My FOTM finally arrived on Tuesday of this week. It seems like it took an awfully long time to get to me. I get the customized option, which is supposed to go out on the last day of each month.

Hi Carol, I've never heard of Nymo before, what exactly is it?

Everything you're working on is looking so great, Carol! The first assignment of Mystery IX turned out perfectly, Garden Spot Sampler looks wonderul and so does Celtic Winter. Fabulous stitching! :)
