Thursday Stash

Well, I did it. I am so in love with the Woodcliff Throw that I had to buy the yarn to make it. Between Joann's and the Naturally Caron web site, I now own two skeins in each of the colors below. Aren't they yummy? Of course, I don't know when I'll make the throw, but at least when I'm ready to start, I'll have everything I need!
The silk drapes on our bedroom are wonderful. DH likes them so much he was able to sleep in until 10:30 on Sunday! Tomorrow is the first morning I'll have the opportunity to sleep in. Maybe I'll be able to sleep past 7, which is late for me.

DH leaves for a week early tomorrow morning. I have the day off which gives me a day to play. That's good. I haven't felt like playing this week. It's been hot and I've been exhausted. I'm hoping I'm more energetic since I can sleep in. The stitchery projects I traced last week are now ironed on the fabric and are ready for stitching. My secret project is closer to being finished. I have a pincushion to make for a swap. Maybe I'll work in my bedroom tomorrow. Since it's the only room with AC, it might not be a bad idea to stay cool.

Happy Stitching!
Sweet P

Yup, those colors are delicious! I'll be interested to know how you like working with that yarn. The afghan will be lovely!

I ordered the yarns on line the same day I read your original post on it. They arrived in 2 days-what lovely service from the Caron Yarn website. I have one motif finished-It is lovely and quite different from any crocheting I have done-some different combinations that are interesting to do. Since you change color almost every row it certainly won't be boring! Thanks for sharing this with your readers-I doubt I would have found either the yarn or the pattern without your help!
