Quit Spending Money!!
That is something that I have yet to perfect. If I see something I want, I buy it. Saturday I ran into Target and found the cutest slippers (I think so anyway)
Sunday Autumn and I went to Connie's house and stash shopped. For those that don't know her, Connie used to own a LNS in St Louis and closed her shop when she moved to LA. She had some silk threads that I bought. I think they may come in handy for some future exchanges, etc.
This is Sapphire Expressions from Silkweaver that Autumn gave me. I am going to try to use it for Stargazer. I am concerned that it will be too dark but, I will pull the threads and look at it. I have been searching for fabric for this pattern ever since it came out. My problem is that with its name, I feel like it should be done on fabric that looks like night but I am afraid that the colors will blend in. Oh well, we will see.
This last picture is my stash haul from Needlecraft Corner. After Christmas, I was looking over all of the patterns that I want to stitch this year that are already in my stash. I realized I needed some NPI silks and Drema had them at the old price and 20% off so I made the plunge. I also got the fabric for a Drawn Thread piece that I am going to start and the Waterlilies are for another sewing kit. It was a good stash weekend! Make me stop the insanity!
In other news, I did get my new health insurance and verified my dr appt in April so hopefully soon, all these problems will be taken care of.
