Fabric Shopping & Stuff

Last week an email turned up in my inbox from Fabric.com. I’ve been subscribed for a while now and I have been tempted – but last week was too good to pass up. Long story short, 10 1/2 yard cuts of SILK Dupioni fabric for $30. That includes shipping. Yesterday my fabric arrived.

I also stopped at the local rug hookers shop (no! I will not start another hobby! please feel free to remind me of that) and picked up some wool fabric to maybe use in the purple stitching set.

I know, the pink looks like it has a skin condition – it’s nicer in person. Once the other choices I ordered arrive I’ll compare and decide what I’m going to do.

Now while I did have all the beads for the other sections of Rachel’s MiraRR, I did not have the two I needed for my section. And to make shipping worthwhile…

Today I’m going to stitch some more on Rachel’s since mailing is coming next week and I’ll make an effort to take pictures of my beading. Hopefully tomorrow or Saturday I’ll get some pictures and an explanation of The Missy Method To Better (Or At Least Easier) Beading ™ up.

    Nice stash! That silk fabric is yummy.

    Love those silk fabrics. I saw that sale came up and was going to order some and then backed out. Now I’m sorry I did. Those are great fabrics for lining boxes with (among other things).

    My fabric should arrive shortly, woot!

    Love that chart 🙂 Excellent package “filler” LOL

    Think of your Virtue and Resist the Hooking! lol!

    That wool is delicious. If I had/knew where it was a rug-hooking shop nearby I’d go there and then spend the rest of my days making penny rugs!

    Lovely silk…total deal!! Great new chart too. I’m curious about this easier beading method you are talking about. I’ve got beads coming up on Letter C! I’m not relishing the thought of the YLI invisible thread…I need to find another alternative.

    Love your silk! I’m a huge dupioni silk whore LOL

    That wool looks lovely, too!

    wait just a minute…you have a local rug hooking shop. I think this is something I should have known about. Perhaps I could tempt you into accompanying me to a class, you don’t have to, you know, partake. Ahem. Love Black Horse Inn – I think I need that one before they are gone forever. And I can’t wait to see your Missy Method Beading. (of course, there are sparkly beads involved, so I am attentive!!!). Love the dupioni – good deal for all that!

    Oh that bloody question ROFL – it gets me almost every time. You’d think I was smarter than that! Maybe it’s my advanced age!
    Love that silk duponi – what gorgeous colors. Of course, when one orders beads, you need to add to the package to justify the stitching. Nice choice.

  9. Cheryl says:

    OK, my first post got eaten! Let’s try again.

    There was a sale on silk duponi and you and Annette didn’t tell me? And, I thought we were friends! JK (well, sorta 🙂 ) Those colors are truly yummy!! Oh I decided how to finish my Chatelaine Exchange – finally. Just need to run to JoAnn’s for a few supplies.

  10. Siobhan says:

    Nice new stash! I want SO badly to do rug hooking but am resisting… but dang, I do love that wool!
