First off I want to say Thank You for the nice comments I received about my Three Gables. I really did enjoy stitching that and hopefully by now Joyce has received the pattern and the threads I mailed to her.
I've started something new and it's a Threadwork Primitive design called "Sunbird". I'm stitching this on a 32ct. hand dyed with silks.
I'm also working on a shawl for a friend in Pa. She wanted something "happy" and machine washable. I chose Isaac Mizrahr's Premier in a pretty pink color.
I also was somewhat of a bad girl when it came to purchasing yarn this past week. Here's what I bought:
The one in the front with the purples and blues is an Araucania Huasco DK weight of 100% Merino Wool. The pink and green one is a hand dyed by one of my favorite dyers on Etsy....JulieSpins....and it's 80% Merino, 10% Cashmere and 10% Nylon and last but not least is the purple and green one in the back. That also is an Araucania Huasco DK weight of 100% Merino. I really don't need anymore yarn but the colors just pull me to them.
Peyton and I went shopping on Wednesday for a dress for their engagement portrait and I think she chose a beautiful lace dress in navy blue with a tan underlining.
I hope all you ladies have a wonderful weekend and hopefully not so hot weather. We are going out to dinner tonite with John, Peyton and Little John so that makes my weekend right there. We're going to Kobe's.....my DH favorite restaurant.
Blessings To All, Barbara
