No stitching!

I didn't have time to stitch yesterday ... In the afternoon, I did some cleaning and in the evening, my friend Astrid came with two of her children and Emma who had spent the night with them. We decided to invite them to have dinner with us (they love to eat mexican) . Chuy made a seven layer burrito (not very mexican ... more like Tex Mex ) Her husband joined us after work so it was a nice and joyful dinner but in a tiny place ... That's also why we don't invite a lot of people over ... Our dream is to rent or buy a house ...

Have you noticed Silkweaver had new odds and ends? Last time, I arrived too late to grab good colors but this time, I was here when I got the mail. I was going to turn off the computer so I almost missed it Well, if you went there right away and saw that most of the evenweave fabrics were out of stock, it's because I had then all in my cart I had like 39 fabrics at one point in my cart ... Of course, I almost released them all (couln't really buy for $339 worth of fabrics ... didn't win the lottery ... yet ) I chose mainly small cuts (they are cheaper ) and chose opalescent whenever it was possible !!! I am not a cuter : I don't like to cut my own fabric, mainly because I am afraid of ruining my very beautiful and precious fabric !!! (yes I'm a little addicted with hand dye fabrics ... They give that little twist to a piece that make them stunning and unique ) I am planning on stitching small charts from magazines.

I didn't stitch but I haven't showed you my friday night progress so here it is. I did like many of you do: I decided to stitch the center part of the dress little by little. I stitch parts of 8 stitches instead of the 20 needed.

New stash ::happy dance for you::

Having friends over is great fun but I agree difficult in a small place.

She's looking lovely. Doing a little of the dress at a time sounds like a good plan, you'll make headway and not go to crazy being stuck with one color.

Sounds like you got a wonderful stash fix at Silkweavers, can't wait to see you post a picture of all your goodies when you get them. Also, Happy Belated Blogaversary.

Your evening sounds lovely! We never have people over unless it's warm enough to go outside because we have a teeny tiny house. So, I feel your pain.

Great haul on the odds and ends!

Dang-it! I so wish I could stitch as fast as you! Beautiful Beautiful progress. I'm going to love seeing this come to life!
