It seems I don't go looking for something new to start - the starts find me! I got a package in the mail yesterday. We have a lovely mailman who brings my packages to the door. I ordered a kit from Thistle Threads. It is a teaching kit. What a great opportunity to buy a teaching kit and not have to have all the expense of traveling. I'm so glad Tricia is moving and clearing our her studio. The kit I bought is called "Rose Trellis". It comes with a box.
I really like this box. It is a nice quality and well done. I like that it is lined with yellowed newspaper.
I'm not sure I like the 40 count linen. Overdyed linen loses its stiffening/starch when it is dyed. I like a linen with some gumption to it, I don't like limp linen. So I may switch this out. I'll try it first just to see if I like it. This kit has nice silk threads and some very cool buttons to make a waxer out of.
I want to start this but I'm not quite ready as I have the Vintage Strawberry ready to go and I am hot and heavy into Painted Lady. I also got some spangles and some mica.
The mica is much smaller than I expected but it will be fine for experimenting with. I think we will be using mica in the Mermaid Treasures class.
The Painted Lady is going well. I have much of the door area done. It is keeping my interest. Would you believe that I am on Page 42 of the directions?
We are getting more snow today. I am very bad, third day in a row that I haven't gone to exercise.
