Night before last, I returned home after working, and it was there. It was the package I had been waiting for. For two long weeks, I waited and waited anxiously checking the mailbox each day. And what was I waiting for?
Aren't they pretty? 14 new colors. I have about a dozen colors and got started using this #8 pearl cotton so wanted to remain consistent.
Now you will either laugh at me or cry with me. I love living in a rural community, but trying to find certain things such as pearl cotton is a bit challenging. The closest pearl cotton is an hour away and only a few basic colors. It is at times like these that I value the internet.
And to show you what I am using it on...
These are all works in progress so please excuse my markings and a few of the stitches that require more than one color are incomplete.
This will be a long term project as I don't get to work on it a lot. None of these blocks are finished as I was waiting for more colors. Now I can finish up a block at a time which is more like me.
I'm not quite sure how it happened that I have two hand stitching long term projects going at the same time. Baaad me, shame on me. Oh well, I won't be board - will always have something to work on.
The other long term project in my Cathedral Window quilt which if you are keeping track (as I'm sure you are:) I only have 54 more blocks to iron.
Keep warm and until next time,
