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.
