Back to Angel of Love tonight. I got her collar done, and a bit more of the stitching in her skirt, preparing it for all of that incredible beading that is yet to come! LOL!
When I got home from work this afternoon, my husband commented that the mail was like Christmas today - he sure was right! I got in a whole lot of fabric today :-) First is my Celebration Bag from Silkweaver. I always love receiving these bags that Silkweaver sells when new colors come out in their various lines.... you receive random colors, and I received a fat quarter of 28 ct Reflections lugana in Rock-A-Bye, a fat quarter of 32 ct Expression jobelan in Elegance (nice lavender!), and a fat quarter of Expressions belfast in Jubilation, which just might be what I am looking for when I do the future Fairy Idyll SAL with Karen (must check it with the floss to truly decide, though).... I also received the Blue Diamonds Reflections for the Celtic Winter SAL and the Green Apple Reflections that I might use for Celtic Summer.... I also received the odd cuts I ordered from Dyeing4U...small cuts in various sizes of lugana and jobelan in Manhattan Myst, Nautical Lights and Majestic:OK, I got more stash from ebay in the mail too - a fat quarter of 32 ct antique white linen, a fat half of Silkweaver Antique Gold Cashel, the Stitcher's World magazine featuring Teresa Wentzler's Dragon Ride, the chart I bought to surprise my friend, the Winter Visitor chart by Crossed Wing Collection, the two charms by The Trilogy, and the DMC Lavender Fairy chart.... I bet the mailman had tons of extra room in his Jeep after he stopped here! When it rains, it pours, I guess :-)
I stopped at AC Moore's this afternoon and picked up all the DMC for Celtic Winter, Celtic Summer and Moon Fairy Spirit.... getting ready to go soon on all of these :-) I also ordered the Petite Treasure Braid for Celtic Summer from Paw Prints Cross Stitch, and I am going to contact them tonight to also add the three colors I also need for Autumn Fairy Spirit... along with Night...or Resting Butterfly (seems to have two names, depending on whether you use the booklet, as I am, or buy the kit...) that is already now kitted up and ready to go...I should be set for a little while... or until something else that is pretty comes along.... like the SAL Isabelle and I are thinking of doing: Cats' Eyes - LOL! Someone help me!! :-)
A lot from various spots in the garden today:
Daylily: TutankhamenDaylily: Black-Eyed StellaDaylily: Butterfly GardenDaylily: Starlift
New DVD Release Tuesday again!! I am anxiously awaiting a chance to watch my new DVD: Hide and Seek!!
Red Sox 7, Rangers 4 - at last, the Red Sox are ready to look into what is wrong with Keith Foulke! I feel for the guy - the highest highs to the lowest lows.... and Mike Timlin showed no problem with stepping in and taking over that closer job tonight! And how about Manny Ramirez' huge grand slam... with Bill Mueller on his heels with a HR of his own! Woo Hoo guys! Still sitting pretty (for now) atop MLB's toughest division!!
Stitched on today: Angel of Love
