Christmas in March


Some of you may remember that Jamie bought me some fabric for Christmas and when the parcel came all it was was an empty envelope.  Well after a 3 month fight with everyone from the seller to Canada Post to Paypal I thankfully received my money back and last week I had a look on ebay to see what sort of fabric could be found on there.  

I stumbled upon a seller from British Colombia who sells Zweigart fabric and after talking with them some more I come to find out that the over-dyed fabric they sell is dyed by Silkweavers.  The shop is called Stitch In Time Fine Needlework and they were a dream to deal with.  I ordered the fabric on Friday and I had it in my hand on Thursday.  It was packaged very well, each piece was in it's own plastic bag, then all three were in another plastic bag and the envelope had extra tape along all the edges and around the middle, no possibility of it accidentally being ripped open.  There was also a hand writting note, which I love!  They also allow you to combine shipping, for all three pieces my shipping was about $4 which I was very happy about.  They don't have a huge selection of fabric, when I ordered I think there were only 4 or 5 different colors but I have checked again and they now have 12 different colors in the 32ct.  They also sell other counts of fabric, patterns, threads, etc.   Definitely go check them out!!

This first one is Iris Garden, it is really more blue/green than blue/pink/purple and I plan to stitch a Mirabilia mermaid on it.

This one is Witch's Brew

And this one Aurora.

I am very impressed with the colors and can't wait to start stitching on them!

I took the kids to McDonalds for lunch and to play at the "park" as Thomas calls it.  It was a wild zoo in there yesterday!!  But they had a ball and it is free.  Win-win!  After we got home I spent some time with Titania and stitched more of her dress.  I might just work on her again today since I am enjoying her so much right now.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stitching!
