I treated myself this weekend. It was a splurge, but, ohhhhh, worthy every penny. If you could only feel how soft and luxurious it is.
Isn't it dreamy?!!!

I don't know if you can tell from the photo, but it is a soft yellow with teeny-tiny silver beads and the tiniest of sequins.This is the pattern. I made my purchase at Westport Yarns. They had a sample made up in a charcoal gray. It was stunning, but I just couldn't draw myself away from the yellow. Oh, how I love yellow. And robin's egg blue. And baby pink. And apple green.

Frannie and I have been lucky this summer. We won giveaways from two blogs.

The first was from Pam Kitty Morning. She is launching a new line of fabric. I love it and you will too! If you like to make potholders, here is the link to a great PKM tutorial.
But the prize was for this - an autographed copy of Cotton Floss from Cinderberry Stitches. This is Natalie Lymer's fist book. It's filled with all kinds of projects and stitchery designs in the fun and colorful Cinderberry style. Thank you Pam Kitty Morning and Natalie. Frannie and I love it!

Our second giveaway prize was received from Pat Sloan.
It is an Aurifil Kit Art - a box filled with 12 spools of 50 wt. Italian cotton in Pat's 12 favorite basic colors. Perfect for machine quilting and applique.
Can you say Mmmmmmmm... two luxuries in one weekend. Thank you Pat.

Oh, what the heck!!! (Do people still say that?) Let's go all out this weekend.
Frannie had her nails done.
