Here is what I got today from Because You Count :
A 7x7 piece of 28ct Cashel Linen in Echo for Trick or Treat Couple by The Frosted Pumpkin
2 spools of Kreinik#4 032 for Hannah Lynn
3 Skeins of Weeks Dye Works, 1 in Kohl and 2 in Cocoa
2 Skeins of The Gentle Art in Endive
The Kohl is for Halloween Spooky Sampler by The Frosted Pumpkin and Cocoa and Endive are for Promise Me by Lizzie Kate.
I have started using the Kreinik while I was waiting for these picture to load. The pattern says to use 2 strands, but I think that looks bad so I picked that out and am now just using 1 strand and it looks much, much better. This is my first time using metallics so if anyone has any hints I would be forever grateful! :)
UPDATE: The boy just brought me in a worm and told me he found a baby snake in the dirt. I guess all is well in the world again.... BOYS!!!
