Good Mail

When I went to Spring Fling I saw a little heart pillow that Barb and Alma made using a very pretty red linen.  It was an overdyed.  I really liked the color.  It was called Tango from Picture This Plus.  Then when I was at the Betsy Morgan classes, I saw the Elegant Stitch Breast Cancer piece done on a red fabric instead of the called for light pink.  I loved it.  So I ordered some Tango overdyed fabric and I just got it yesterday.  I really like it.  I chose Belfast 32 linen. 

 I want to try stitching on this and see if I like it or not.  Of course, since I was ordering, I got a couple of other colors too.  

I don't have any plans of what to stitch on them but I'm sure I'll find something.  
I've seen a lot of Picture This Plus linen while watching FlossTube.  I guess red is a really difficult color to get consistent results.  I don't like overdyed linen that just looks dirty and like someone stomped on it.  
The weather has been just beautiful this week.  Very nice walking weather.  
Enjoy your Tuesday!
