Ocean Blue

Yesterday I went out to the craft store to see if my beads for Unicorn and Fairy Magic was in but I was a little depressed to find out that they were not here yet so I didn't purchase much of anything except for some DMC floss I needed and some Mill Hill seed beads. After that was the usually hair pulling trip to Wal-Mart. When I got home I found out that Krissy was spending the night at a friends' house and Mac had a friend coming over to spend the night. There went my evening of calmness. I had wanted to start working on Renee's RR but I had to scratch that idea with the boys here tonight.

Instead of stitching I decided to dye some more fabric. I am planning on stitching Deepest Love by Mirabilia in January and I wanted the fabric to look like the ocean. I used the color Royal Blue to dye the fabric. I am not sure if I just like it or if I really like yet. lol

This week I was trying to work on Collecting Shells. It didn't go so well. I made some progress on it but my heart just isn't in this particular piece anymore. So what did I do to make myself feel better? I started stitching on The fortunate Traveler by TW. I am stitching it on 28 count white evenweave fabric. I haven't made enough progress to post a picture of it yet. All that I have been working on is the border around the dragon scene. I will be working on this one tonight since I just found out that Mac's friend will be here again tonight.

Oh, Dawn - I really dislike going to WalMart too, lol! Especially on the weekends. Since they moved to the other side of town, I go about four times a year now.

Love the color of your dyed fabric. Bet it's much better in person :))

BTW, did you remove the pic of the fabric? My Newsgator had the pic, when I came to your blog it was gone! Maybe you removed it??
