I finally had a chance to get to Michael's for the supplies I needed to finish my designs. They always have some beautiful ribbons to choose from. I found some really pretty multi-colored dotted ribbon for the Piggie, and some beautiful blue ribbon for the Lamb. I picked out some Daisy buttons that I really like, but now I am not sure if they will not fade into the white of the design. I might have to try some more colorful buttons. I was very disappointed NOT to be able to find any windchimes in the package. Darice used to make them. I tried at Michael's and at JoAnn's and neither on of them had them. I am going to try tomorrow at Ben Franklin's. I have a feeling they might have them! In the meantime, I will wait to put the finishing touches on my designs. I like to finish them all at once, so I don't mess up the bows and things before I take the photographs.
I started on my new column for next month. I think I am going to be really happy with this design, but we will see!
I also found some really pretty new yarn by Paton's. It is called Bohemian, and is bulky weight, and so very soft. I have a friend who has breast cancer, and is going through chemo therapy right now. I want to make her a warm, winter hat with it! I also picked up a skein of Lion Brand Suede in Spice color. It is so pretty and so soft to touch. If I get the chance, I will take a picture of it and post it here.
