I am getting a much-needed haircut and highlights today. My hair has gotten pretty long, and I've gotten to where I can't stand it on my neck, I put it up all the time!
So I'm going SHORT!! Plus my gray strands are peeking out from under my last highlights, so I must re-cover those, lol.
I recently had a birthday (Sept. 20) and with my birthday money I, of course, bought more stash :o)
I ordered 20 new skeins of Threadworx (overdyed cotton) from Anita's Little Stitches ( Anita's Little Stitches ) They should arrive today or tomorrow. Anita has been wonderful to work with! Very nice and very communicative. Which I appreciate :o)
She also has a wonderful blog... Anita's Little Stitches Blog .
Another favorite online shop (ONS) is Wastach Needelcraft (Wasatch Needlecraft).
Karen is just fabulous, and her ONS is growing everyday.
And, of course, I love 123 Stitch/ ! Extremely speedy service from Joanne and a huge selection of charts and fabrics. I just wish she had more silk floss. She carries Belle Soie silks, which are great, but I really wish she could get Gloriana and The Thread Gatherer.
Back to my new stash aquisition...
I ordered some charts from Wasatch: Quaker Diamonds, by Rosewood Manor. This is a beautiful brand new design. It looks more like a Vierlanden than a Quaker, but I love both styles so all's well :o)
I also ordered a couple of fairy designs from Who Knew (not my thing, but I will stitch them for my girls, eventually, lol).
Since I vowed to learn new finishing techniques, I order GPA's Everlasting Love Italian Purse. It is absolutely gorgeous!!! It is supposed to have complete finishing instructions... I hope so. But, I am determined to make this purse, shich holds stitchy stuff (scissors, floss, needles, etc.).
Hopefully, my new goodies will arrive soon :o)
That's it for now...Time to get a haircut :o)
