Madeline Has A Hat
Madeline is coming along. She now has a hat. I spent several hours yesterday just sitting and stitching. I must admit that there is a reason to press forward FAST.
On Wednesday I took my stitching buddy to Issaquah, WA where the closest needlework shop resides. Our friend, Denise, owns ThreadNeedle Street. It is a small shop with a large inventory.
I gave my Vegas Nights chart to my friend and helped her pick out colors. She is doing it in blues. She gave me her chart for Plum Blosson Kimono (a Margaret Bendig design) and I treated myself to silk as the chart called for. When I saw her finished kimono hanging on the wall I loved it and just had to do it. I usually substitute floss for a lot of silk but not this time. Now I want to get started. BUT not until Madeline is finished.
