My Yellow Bird will be turquoise however. Sadly the LNS here is going out of business. The owner I was fond of left the shop this past summer and I’ve not been there much since. When I stopped in Saturday I was a little surprised but not shocked that they are closing at the end of the month. Although they didn’t have what I was looking for, I didn’t leave empty-handed.
I’ve been trying to decide what to use for Yellow Bird since it was released. I think the model is beautiful as it is but I knew I wanted to see how this design looked in a bolder color. I really like using Threadworx threads so I thought this would be a good time to try another color. As you can see I’m going with color 1052 (1 strand over 2 on 32 count lambswool), those fun scissors are from Dinky Dyes by the way.
I also picked up a couple of issues of Just Cross Stitch. I confess, I do not subscribe to any stitching magazines, or any other magazines for that matter. I don’t like the clutter, now that I’m packing, I’m really glad I don’t. I have several years worth of cooking magazines to pack still and they are pretty dusty, but you never know what perfect recipe might be in there….imagine if I had heaps of stitching or decorating magazines to cope with! Each of these JCS issues has something great, Jan/Feb 2011 has a very pretty Plum Street Samplers design and Mar/April has an adorable Country Cottage Needleworks design. I’m glad I stopped by the shop.
Still packing away here, it would seem like I should feel like great progress is being made but we just keep finding more stuff that needs packing. I still need to rest in the afternoon and by bedtime I have difficulties breathing…Jerry is keeping the chocolate supply flowing thankfully.
Still no news – maybe tomorrow!!
