My fabric arrived - yippee!

I ordered a fat half of 32 ct. Sudden Storm from Silkweaver's a week ago and it's arrived already!!! I haven't opened the package yet since I'm not home at the moment. Later, for sure! Now for the pattern and the fibers I ordered to arrive.

I need to find what I did with the huge zip bag I have with a ton of house patterns in it. I had pulled likely candidates for the "without a U" Neighborhood RR I was in. I'll sure need it again and I'd like it to be handy. I'm sure I'll locate it by June!! LOL

I should introduce myself a little bit. I live in Olney, Md, located halfway between Baltimore, Md and Washington, DC (where I work). I have 5 cats and a kitten. The kitten is precious but driving my brother and I (and the adult cats) crazy with her youthful exuberance. We all live together in a nice townhouse in a nice neighborhood. We're still less than a mile from the rural farms with the cows, donkeys and horses. I love it!

I'm just-turned-50, single, and love to read adventure and mystery books and to cross stitch. I like watching reality shows (Survivor, American Idol, Amazing Race, America's Next Top Model, etc), Lost, Sunday Morning, 24 and Gray's Anatomy. I stitch while watching all of them except for Lost and 24 - I was missing too much!

I adore starting projects! (Don't you?) So many of the projects I finish are ones I started YEARS ago and finished currently. It took 7 days to stitch stretched out over 17 years. Cracks me up!

This RR is going to be so enjoyable!

Woohoo, can't wait to see it! I am going to do a floss toss this weekend and work on finalizing my thread colors :-).

hi Jane :)

I had to go check out Sudden Storm too. LOL
It is quite snazzy!

Happy to meet you and look forward to lots of happy stitching!

Interesting fabric! Must go and take a look. I'm using 35ct natural linen. Have stitched a square border so far, and will pull out the designs this week.

wow you are really cooking
Is everyone sending fibers with their projects or how does that work? I am just planning on DMC for ease I think but I'm curious.
