Hello Friends! Thought I'd stop in for a minute and show you a picture of my latest project. I'm working on Summer Basket from Blackbird Designs (Loose Feathers #38). I've had it in my stash for a little while and started it at the BBD retreat two weeks ago (or is it three?) Anyway, the linen is WDW Baby's Breath, kind of a soft pink, and the fibers are mostly GAST with one WDW - the colors remind me of Spring!
Mother Nature is quite mixed up and we are experiencing winter, not spring weather here in Minnesota. After no snow in March or April, today it snows! My DD had a lacrosse game today and baby it was cold and windy with rain and snow mixed...brrrr.....hopefully this return to winter will be short-lived.
I have a couple of questions for you:
1) Which brand of needles do you like to stitch with? Piecemakers, John James, Bohnin, other? I guess I usually stitch with Piecemakers or Bohnin. On Tuesday night I was stitching with some #28 needles from John James and I broke two of them. Very frustrating!
2) Does anyone know if there is a needlework store in the Orlando that is worth a visit? I will be in Orlando next week; not sure if I will have any free time, but if I do.....
3) I'm looking for a copy of the BBD Loose Feathers #1 called Spring's Promise. Anyone interested in selling or loaning their copy?
Thank you for stopping by to visit. To all the mothers out there, I wish you an enjoyable and relaxing Mother's Day tomorrow!
