Tonight I worked on Legends of the Dragons. "Magic," the center dragon, is starting to grow now... and I ambled on to work on a little of the knot work border too... I opted to use one strand of Waterlilies silk for mine - just a standard response for me using 32 ct. It is really delicate - I like it a lot :-)
I ordered a custom cut of Peach Grove Cashel from Sugar Maple Fabrics for Once Upon A Time - this is the fabric recommended by Laura of Passione Ricamo for this design. Mindy of Sugar Maple Fabrics was really excellent to work with - I told her what I needed the fabric for and she helped me out tremendously - I think I am going to like the fabric she will be dyeing for me in the next week or two.
I received a small order in the mail today - Wintry Mix and the embellishments for Ice Blossom - I put in a request over in the Fiberswappers group to see if anyone has a small amount of Iced Lavender Waterlilies silk that they would trade with me so that I can stitch this one :-) I really hope someone can help me out - I have tons of fibers I can trade for a small amount of this...help??
Hey, hey! Ryan Newman is on the pole again for the Samsung/Radio Shack 500 in Texas on Sunday :-) Go Rocket Man! (photo from www.nascar.com)
Red Sox 10, Devil Rays 0 - great game tonight for David Wells - seven solid innings of pitching - YES!
