Babylo is on its way...a self striping doily and a move....

Just got word from my supplier..BABYLO is on its way to my house!!  Bad news is that I am only going to get half of what I ordered.  Apparently....my supplier can't get it from DMC USA..but has to work with someone from France...and DMC France has to rely on DMC Bulgaria for the BABYLo....and from what I understand..Bulgaria has a dye problem..and I just need to keep ordering and back ordering...But at least I am getting some of my order...so being as I don't know what I am getting it will a really good surprise when opening the box.   Should be here at my house by mid week..next week...

Ok we sold our house...went up north to look for a place to live..well..not much on the market in the area we want to be...we put in an offer..they countered..their counter was unreasonable..so we backed out...our house is closing on or before April 29...so that kind of puts us in a bind for buying...and I don't like feeling like I have to buy something...so we have chosen to stay in Evansville and rent an apartment....that allows us time to look...and make a good decision...no rush.  I feel good about that...We will have a garage..for storage..we need it as my house is 2200 sq. ft...the apartment is 983....this ought to be fun.....my hubby already knows the deal...all thread..all pattern books, hooks..and yarn...will be going into the apartment....as for the rest of our things..well that has to be worked out.    I will be shutting down my etsy shop for a week or two until I get everything up and organized...so if you want thread..pattern books..order before April 10 or so...and I probably won't be back up and running until at least the last week of april..we will see



I made this doily..It is a Mary Werst design...this past week...Made with Alize Miss Batik...it is a self striping thread...this thread is fun because of the way it works itself.  I had no part on how the striping occurs..so I imagine no two doilies will ever look the same..even with the same dye lot....this doily has alot..and I mean alot of front post stitchwork..the texturing is so awesome.  


Well that is what has happened in the past week in my world.  I really need to get busy and clean a room out today ...I will let you all know when the babylo gets here...I just have to make a decision to unpack it and get it listed ....or wait....argh......thanks for stopping by and reading whats going on in my life or my head.  May you all be have a wonderfully blessed week...
