More Rainforest Crunch & More Stash!

I have been working steadily along on Rainforest Crunch.  Still loving it!  Here is my progress so far.


I did substitute the Kreinik braid for Rainbow Gallery Braid, as I cannot stand working with any Kreinik fibers.  And I discovered a wonderful fiber in the process.  I thought I had purchased two cards of Rainbow Gallery Braid, but in fact I purchased one card of the braid and one card of petite treasure ribbon.

When I went to use what I thought was the braid and discovered it was ribbon, I went, oh, crap!  But then I said, what the hell, and tried it.  The ribbon is wonderful!  It lays flat and is a dream to work with.

I have started making needlepoint notes in a small notebook I store in my stitching bag, just so I don't forget anything of importance.  Like needle size and favorite fibers and how many plies with this fiber and that fiber.

I received some more stash in the mail yesterday.  Some fibers for Needle Delights Originals Strawberry Shortcake, Mirabilia's Lady Alexandra, and two Needle Delights Originals patterns: Color Delights - Rainbow and Aquamarine.  I also could not resist picking up Needle Delights Originals Rainforest Revisited when I went to The Stitching Post the other day to pick up the remaining Caron Watercolours for Rainforest Crunch.



Ah, so many great patterns, so little time.
