Hello all! I finally got my first silks ever!! Whoohoo! They sure are soft and silky. I am excited to try them out but I want to finish a few things first. I still haven't finished Debi's Roses. It's taking a lot longer than I thought and I still need to do two more sides for the biscornus. I have progressed on Tanglewood though. I had a serious stitching marathon last night and managed to finish a branch and start another. The q-snap frames are a bit bigger than I had expected (I'm lousy with measurements and estimated the length of the qsnaps). I think I need to purchase the next size down for my other projects. I do like them though! They keep the fabric taught and don't cause creases if I put felt in between the fabric and the frame. I picked that trick up from someone's blog. Whose I can't remember but thank you for the tip!! I also love the new linens I got: Stone Gray Belfast, Antique White and natural linen. Now I need to get more charts!! This stash buying is highly addictive! I want to find a really nice sampler to stitch on my new Antique white linen so I've been browsing samplers and can't decide on the one I want to stitch. I have a couple in mind but I really should finish what I have now then decide later. I hope everyone is having a great day! It's finally warming up here and it is sunny out!
