Friday's post brought my order from ABC Stitch Therapy so I must show you a photo - I ordered the Patchwork Garden Pincushion Ball and asked them to kit it all up for me. The Dinky Dye silks are amazing and I am itching to start this but it has been put away out of temptations sight until my current projects are completed.
And as if that wasn't enough extra stash I was in Christchurch for the day and went to Hands the craft shop there and added some extra to my bulging stash! The threads are hand dyed by a New Zealand textile artist and are Perle 8 and Perle 12 so will be great for hardanger. I snapped up the magazine because it has the Happy Home Sampler that I first saw on Becky's blog (and fell in love with there. With terrific self control I refrained from purchasing the threads and fabric at the same time and decided to check my stash at home first! There are a couple of other purchases including scissors that I couldn't take on the plane so got the shop to mail them to me and you shall see a photo when they come!
