Waiting for mail

My next needle punch project required that I ordered on line the Valdani threads....

isn't this sweet. It is Mistletoe, designed by Yvonne Buus from the winter issue #4 in Punch Needle and Primitive Stitches ( PNPS)magazine. At first I thought I could find suitable variegated threads locally....not so. I checked on line and found first one place but they did not offer all the colors, then I found Anita Little Stitches who did have all the colors and a sale on them as well. I have never ordered from her before but I thought why not. They have already been shipped...right after I sent the order! This will be the first time that I will be punching with something other than DMC 3 strand cotton. The directions tell me to double the strand...another first, using the large needle. I am wondering how this will affect the variegated colors..... we shall see. Our weather continues to be muggy and will be so until the monsoon season ends which is around mid September. This means that we are almost there and it will be a happy day.  Mr H tells me that we had thunder and lightening the other night and I slept through it without a problem. I miss sitting outside with my stitching and reading. This heat has made me a very lazy gal. Well that about covers the happenings around here. It is so nice to have you stop by. Thank you for your friendship and kind words. Have a great day.

That sounds great service from Anita's little stitches, it's exciting getting parcels in the mail with needlework goodies in it. Humid weather doesn't suit me at all, I really wilt in it. We get that about February here in N.Z. Have a good week Gracie.
