I have been working steadily on March Cottage. Have a grand old time!
Last week I ordered a piece of 32 count Lambswool Jobelan from a popular online store, but when I received it a few days ago it was a shade darker and did not have the same weave as Jobelan. So, I immediately e-mailed the store. This happened one other time and they said just keep the fabric and they would mail me out a replacement piece. This time they wanted me to describe the fabric and to send the piece back to them. No problem, as I was not going to use it anyway. I am pretty sure I received a piece of Lambswool linen. It was stiffer, coarser, and did not look at all like Jobelan. My replacement piece was mailed out on Friday, so fingers crossed.
Meanwhile, Saturday arrived and I wanted to pick up the necessary threads for Lizzie Kate's A Little Easter kit, so I decided to make a trip to The Stitching Post. I decided to bring along my March Cottage and compare the 32 count Lambswool Jobelan at The Stitching Post to what I was stitching on, just for my own peace of mind. At this point I actually started to question whether what I had was really Lambswool or maybe Ivory or Bone.
It was definitely Lambswool, as The Stitching Post confirmed, and so I purchased a fat quarter of it, along with all of the threads for the LK Easter kit. I have to say I have been impressed that the last few times I have been to The Stitching Post to purchase threads, all of the ones I have needed have been in stock. It seemed I was on a run where they would be out of one or two of them every time. Very frustrating.
I look forward to starting the LK Easter kit when it arrives this week and continue work on March Cottage.
Have a good weekend, everyone!
