I think I have solved the fabric riddle. 28 cashel in Toasted Almond. I e-mailed Lizzie*Kate again and basically said, okay, you have to give me something more, like at least a few names of fabric that you used so I can have a starting point instead of just "various neutral fabrics." She e-mailed back and said offhand she remembered Light Mocha and Toasted Almond. Hmmm, I had not seen Toasted Almond on any of the sites I had looked at. Eureka!! I think that is it! Wyndham Needleworks had some, so I ordered an 18 by 18 piece. I had found a piece of Light Mocha yesterday and held it up to the kit fabric and the kit fabric was just a little bit darker. I hope it is Toasted Almond. It is a really nice color of fabric.
I just received an e-mail from 1-2-3 Stitch they were not able to process my PayPal payment for the fabric I ordered yesterday that I told you all about. I don't know why that happened, as I had a PayPal payment go through to Traditional Stitches for two magazines just yesterday. Maybe it is a glitch in 1-2-3 Stitch's system? I don't know. But I just cancelled the order outright because I am pretty sure the fabric is Toasted Almond, so there will be no fabric giveaway :( but I'll be saving myself some $$$.
And, ooh, I found the most AWESOME board game yesterday, thanks to Plum Street Samplers. Dixit. It has bunny pieces and art and the board is very pretty. I e-mailed my brother yesterday to see if he had already bought my Christmas present, because if not, that game was what I wanted. Alas, he had already bought it. I mean, it is December 17th, you know? So, it is on my birthday/Christmas list for next year. One of my resolutions is to also not buy everything I see that I like, as I am apt to do, but instead put it on a wish list, so when someone asks next year what do I want, I have an answer. I told BF about the game and about my list. I said I am going to have the LARGEST list of anyone in the world! And he just laughed.
I received some goodies in today's mail. First up is the first thread pack in the newest Country Cottage Needleworks Cakes thread packs, Strawberry. I can't wait to start this!
Next is my fabric and threads for iStitch's Sew Golden: Crescent Colours Finley Gold and 28 count Ruby Cashel.
Finally is the newest issue of Bookmarks magazine. I LOVE this magazine! It always has in-depth reviews on the latest books and I never come away without having found a new book to read.
Happy Friday to everyone! Let the weekend begin! Only 8 days until Christmas!
In peace, love and stitches,
