New Project Excitement!
I purchased a series of used charts from someone. She included the left over silk floss with the patterns. I fell totally in love with the floss, but knew I couldn't justify the cost of buying 11 skeins of it for this pattern. I knew there wasn't going to be enough to use hers, so I was disappointed. What to do, what to do???? So, last night, I sat with all of my different cotton flosses & picked colors to match the silks. I was able to match all but 3 very closely. I debated & debated what to do & was quite honestly pretty down about it. When I went to bed, I couldn't sleep. I laid there & thought.....hey, the Christmas Village piece that I just finished used both silks & cottons...why couldn't I do that with this project?!??!!
So, first thing this morning, here I was, picking flosses again. I am planning to use at least the 3 silks that I don't have cotton matches for & maybe others! We shall see as I work on the pattern.
I haven't been this excited about starting a new project for a long time.
To tease you, I will post a picture of my fabric & the flosses tossed on it!!!!! Stay tuned!
Have a wonderful weekend!
