Silks!

Aren’t they pretty?
After drooling over these silks from Vikki Clayton on various bloggs, I finally caved in and ordered some. They are just oh so pretty! I just ordered some random colors, and I know I will definitely be ordering some more in the future! And Vikki is so helpful and friendly! I have been looking at my silks, and petting them ever since I got them yesterday. They are just so beautiful. Now I am thinking about doing Just Nan’s 4 Wishes in Vikki Clayton silks instead of the Au Ver á Soie silks. The Vikki Claytons are more affordable for me and that is always a good thing. Anyway, I can’t wait to try them out! I am thinking about using the Inky Depths or the Garnet to stitch Quaker Needlework Treasures.

Yesterday, my friend Rosa came for a visit with her girls. It was so much fun to have them over, and especially to see Rosa since we don’t get to see enough of each other. But it is so much fun to see our daughters Karitas and Soley together, they are born eight days apart.

I haven’t been stitching much.. I think I am going through a bit of a stitching slump. I just don’t feel that inspired. But the silks really helped with that I think. At least I am very excited to try them out!

    You all are tempting me with these silks! I know I will eventually break down and order some. 🙂

    And, I had not seen the Quaker Needlework Treasures — another item to add to my wish list! 🙂

    Hugs and stitches…

    það virðist vera einhver ótrúleg saumalægð í fólki en það hlýtur að lagast sérstaklega með svona æðislegu nýju garni.
