I received some items I had ordered from Colonial Crafts today. I always order from them in my birthday month because they give you 20% off during the entire month of your birthday, on all orders. I think that is awesome and usually have several orders during the month of May. But I was good this month. I only ordered a couple times.
I got 3 bottles of Distress It, I make my own walnut crystals dye but it never sprays like Distress It does. I think maybe I do not let the crystals dissolve enough and it clogs the spray bottle. I like to have a bottle or two on hand for delicate items.
I got a copy of the newest Needl’ Love Threads book. I have almost all of these and love the projects in them. I have not thumbed through it yet I am saving it to read at work tonight when I get a break. I love that the projects can be done in so many different ways, applique, wool, embroidery, punch needle, doll making, quilts, etc. Love them.
I also got one of the new patterns from Crab-Apple Hill called Witch Witch’s Boot – awesome!! She has a lot of new patterns I love, the embroidery is unbelievable.
It has been raining pretty bad here today. The lightening has been incredible. Apparently there is a lot of flooding around and a lot of hail. The last couple hours it has been nothing but loud down pours and constant thunder and lightening. I love storms but the kids don’t care for them that much. It was worse when they were coming home from school so they were a little shaken up. I was able to get a nice nap before they got home to prepare for work tonight.
I have only been able to comment on a couple blogs today, and it is kinda frustrating but I guess I cannot complain for a free service. Hopefully all the problems will clear up. I use Internet Explorer and also have Google Chrome on my computer and I cannot even log on to blogger on Google Chrome.
I hope everyone is enjoying there Friday and hopefully in between celebrations find a little stitching time this weekend. I know I will!
