On another note: I finally broke down and purchased Examplar Dames' "Forgiveness."
And, bought the Vikki Clayton silks for it, as well. I knew Vikki when she was a start up company trying to get shops to sell her threads in the mid-1990's. I tried to carry them in my needlecraft shop and my online shop: Cabbage Rose Needlework. So, she's an old acquaintance. But, these new silk threads are much superior to her original ones! They are so much richer in color and the texture is much better. I'm really delighted by her success. It's well deserved!
And, I was really thrilled with the "grab bag" of silks that I got as a small purchase option when I bought the chart and silks! I'm sure many of you have gotten it, as well. But, I loved all the different colors in that bag!
Basically, I'm just a happy little stitcher this long weekend. Although, Jessica has seen her quilt topper and wants me to add more to it so that it will be a bigger quilt! She and her brothers are wise now. I raised them with quilts and afghans, and they know what's what!! LOL
Thank you all so much for your comments, even the small "hellos" make me so happy! I appreciate hearing from you, because I consider you my friends. Your blogs are the places I visit you, too.
Sending hugs and love, Deb in FL
