Black Friday (-ish) Fabric Splurge

Okay, I am ashamed to admit it, but I splurged on some stash after Thanksgiving. Silkweaver had a sale, I thought I needed some fabric and the rest is… well, infamy, really. Wait, I mean history. Yeah, that’s it. 😉 Anyway, it took a month to get to me, but I’ve really been wanting to get two of these colors, so I’m glad to have them in my hot little hands:

Top (L to R): Solo – 28 count linen; Solo – 28 count linen; Hocus Pocus (limited edition color) – 32 count lugana
Bottom (L to R): Scattered Leaves – 32 count linen; Witch’s Brew (limited edition color) – 32 count lugana; Iris Garden – 32 count linen

I could have sworn that one of the solos was supposed to be a blue, but it was so long ago that I don’t remember anymore and it’s pointless to try to argue. Everything but Scattered Leaves and Iris Garden was just for the heck of it anyway. I really have to start ignoring their sales (and I did successfully ignore their Christmas sale, due in large part to the fact that my previous order hadn’t arrived yet) unless I need a specific fabric for something.

At least I can slot this little slip-up into my 5 Finishes challenge and not feel so guilty about it.

I was going to try to slip in a couple of stitches last night on a UFO that I’ve pulled for the WIPocalypse, but I spent too much time running down what appears to be my only skein of DMC 501 for the UFO and then got stuck playing around with PCStitch, so I frittered away all of my spare time and forced myself to be a good girl and go to bed. Bummer. I’m hoping for stitching time tonight, but I’m also trying to balance out stitching with working towards goals that I want to accomplish this year. Speaking of which, I really need to write some of these things down…
