New stash

Hello, world!

Sadly, I don't have any progress to post, but I did want to share the fruits of my recent trip to Jo-Ann Fabric:

This is for a new pattern that I haven't been able to start just yet, but I'm so excited about it. It's fun to look at all the bright colors, since Boreas is a little on the muted/drab side. It even has metallic thread! I've never used metallics before, and I understand they can be a huge pain to work with, but I think the effect will be worth it!

(I'm sure eventually I'll look back on that last sentence and curse myself, but that will be another day!)

  1. I find DMC Metallics really difficult to stitch with. I tend to use Kreinik these days, which is much softer and more sparkly:)))
