So I went to my LNS this past weekend for some retail therapy. I had wanted to pick up a few patterns for some up-coming round robins and a couple of other patterns I have been wanting. The 2 new fairies from Nora Corbett were not in and neither was the new Santa. So here is what I did pick up:
Donner, to add to my Reindeer collection-I think I have 5 now. Lady Alexandra and 16 count “Dirty Aida” to do her on. I also picked up the fabric for Spring Angel. I already had the pattern in my collection and was inspired to get her going by Catherine. You can see her Spring start here. So I went to work on deciding on a fabric. I really wanted a hand dyed since I see them all over the blog world and they are gorgeous. But there were only 2 in 16 ct. aida that would be a possibility, but no-go. So I finally decided on Sea Spray 16 ct. aida which is actually little brighter blue than how it looks in the photo above. But when I left the store, I started second guessing myself and thought I should have gone with what the pattern called for, Twilight Blue, which is what I did my Summer Angel in. So what do you think? Sea Spray or Twilight Blue? Decisions, decisions…I have time as I probably won’t start her right away. Leave me a comment and let me know what you would choose. Also, is there anyone else out there that uses 16 ct. aida??
