It’s just one piece of mail, but it’s been sooooooo long since I had any stitching supplies arrive! Thanks to 123stitch for nearly instant gratification!
There’s not a lot here, but I’m excited about it!
I put the throw pillow from my bed behind so you can see how nicely the colors work together – this will be a decoration for my room. I have NONE of my stitching hanging anywhere in my house. And I have no artwork in my bedroom right now, other than kid-art. I deserve to have something I’ve made that I love in my room. So I ordered 28-count Monaco (my fav fab) in Tea and some over-dyed threads from Threadworx – Rich Chocolate (which has a very subtle variegation) and Hidden Treasures. Which I think was dyed just for me.
The pattern is from My Big Toe (hooray for Boise-area designers, boo for no more LNS to shop in) – “Great Is Thy Faithfulness,” which is my all-time favorite hymn. I plan to stitch this with some combination of Doro Theos to make a meaningful installation in my bedroom. And I may not wait until 2014 to start!
