Fittingly enough for spring in Wisconsin (finally, maybe...), I'm back to work on Nora Corbett's Blossom Collector. She just needs her legs, some more "swirls" and a bunch of bugle beads:
As charted there are two colors of bugle beads, red and root beer; I really love the red, but not so much the root beer. So, just in time for the finish, I received an order from 123Stitch today with four different colors of beads that I can play around with:
I'm hoping to have her finished up by the end of this coming weekend, so stay tuned to see which colors win out.
Today I also received a package from Polstitches, with two of the new Bothy Threads kits:
I really like that when you order these from Polstitches you can get fabric other than Aida. I got opal Lugana in both of these, though they mistakenly put non-opal in the Fairy Glade kit. Fortunately, as soon as I told them about it, they told me to keep this piece and they would put another piece in the mail right away; great customer service! Aren't the dandelions in Fairy Glade just adorable?
Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!
