Goodies in Today's Mail
After a long day at the office, I came home to not one, but TWO fabulous packages! First, I eagerly tore into the one from Shakespeare's Peddler. This is a fabulous online store! Teresa puts together "___ of the month" packages, and I signed up for two of them. First, I decided to get the "Crabby All Year" kits from Raise the Roof Designs. The first kit has January through March. What a concept - celebrating the things you don't normally celebrate - like taxes! I haven't decided yet whether I'm doing these separately or all on once piece of fabric. I also signed up for the Little House Needlework Designs Fruit Thread Packs. This is a chance for me to build up my stash of overdyed threads. Each month you get a chart for one of the fruit designs, and 5 skeins of Crescent Color threads. So cool!
The second package I opened was from Silkweaver, where I've signed up for the Fabric of the Month Club. They dye their own fabrics, from aida to cashel to lugana and more, and they offer a wide variety of monthly options. I chose the 3 9x13's, and this month they are all in shades of purple. They look blue in the photograph, but they're definitely different purples and are truly lovely. I've also ordered a custom-made piece for my Chatelaine Alpine Seasons mandala, and will show it off when I get it.
