Thunder and Threads

Today the storm continues, which is fine by me for it is the only time I like my new Jeep which I have dubbed "water bug." Joann's is once again having a sale on DMC (whoo hoo!) so I kitted up a new mermaid pattern...

I love the pin up quality, very Merabilly! 
 Floss toss, the colors are much richer in person...
 Lastly, an update on my name tree. you can see the "MARK," but the iridescent fabric is completely lost. I did solve the problem of the dye not being set, no more green fingers!

Stitching in the Rain

Well, more like Stashing in the Rain!
The owners of our LNS returned from Market last night and here is what I picked up:
 I also started one of the name Christmas Trees, but was mortified when my fingers turned green from the silk I was using. A friend in my Thursday night stitching circle suggested I soak the silk in white vinegar to set the dye.
Lane the investigator!
Hopefully this will solve my problem. The Maiden

DMC Sale!

What is a girl to do who cannot stitch? STASH of course!
Joann's had DMC on sale for 0.27 cents a skein, so I kitted up several of my patterns: Mirabilia's Elizabeth, Garden of Eerie, Witch's Pie, and Skeleton Crew. I was tempted to kit a HAED, but with my mysterious neck injury keeping me from stitching I thought better of it.

I also picked up this cute basket for half off! Lane of course immediately investigated.
