Two packages arrived in the mail yesterday but I was unable to post details. More about this later.
Firstly, my NPI silks arrived for Random Thoughts so now I am ready for the off, but not quite yet, as I really must do my Christmas gifts and ornaments before I start anything new! The fabric I have chosen for this is 36ct pearled barley but, now I have seen the 40ct bisque that I received last week, I may just change my mind so ... watch this space! I love the NPI silk colours though and I am sure I will enjoy stitching this.
The second package came from Wendy
and enclosed Valerie
's Quaker Friendship RR
. The fabric is Lakeside Linen's 36t Vintage Light Examplar and the threads are Crescent Colors Belle Soie in Creme de Menthe and Glorianna Silk in Birch Brown. This is such a beautiful colour choice and the photo does not do it justice. I am itching to start my section on this one!
My reason for no post yesterday was that I went to Canterbury with a close friend. We attempted some gift shopping but just ended up wandering the shops looking at the Christmas displays and then went to an Italian restaurant for lunch where the chicken risotto I had was absolutely delicious. As my friend has been unwell we didn't stay out for too long as I didn't want to overtire her so, after another hour window shopping, we came home. I did mean to take my camera and take a photo of Canterbury Cathedral
but, as usual, I forgot the camera - sorry!
Tonight our Stitch-n-Bitch group are celebrating the birthdays of our very own two 'Halloween Witches' - Sue and Sylvie with dinner at a local Mexican Restaurant and I will take the camera for a photo shoot!
Thanks for visiting
