Long Day...

Long and a bit overwhelming but good! I've definitely realized today I'm no longer a manager, I am a director, and I get all the perks and drawbacks that go with that title, haha! It was nice to unwind tonight with some stitching, though I'm exhausted and am about to crash!

Here is my progress for tonight:
As of 12/10/12
I also received a wonderful parcel from Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie with pieces of fabric for my Crazy January Challenge!
Beautiful!
The top two (Fairy Dance and Isolde) and the bottom right (Lady of the Lake) are going to be used in the Crazy January Challenge. I had planned on using the bottom left one (Mulled Cider) too, and though I think it's absolutely gorgeous, it's going to be a bit too dark for the piece that I wanted it for after looking at the threads against the fabric, so I'm ordering another fabric and will put that beautiful piece to the side for another day! Nothing wrong with starting a hand dyed fabric collection - I've joined a couple Fabric of the Month clubs for next year, so I know this won't be the last fabric to add to the collection!

Off to bed for me!

Until next time!

  1. Flames of Desire look good, the fabric is beautiful and good luck with CJC. I'm not participating in the CJC this year... I will have a few big starts but no crazy little ones. I have to finish ones from this and last year though...

  7. Gorgeous fabric, I was thinking of starting a fabric collection but I have enough addictions to charts and kits as it is, the other half would leave me! haha x
