Happy Mail Day To Me!

It's just one piece of mail, but it's been sooooooo long since I had any stitching supplies arrive!  Thanks to 123stitch for nearly instant gratification!

There's not a lot here, but I'm excited about it!

I put the throw pillow from my bed behind so you can see how nicely the colors work together - this will be a decoration for my room.  I have NONE of my stitching hanging anywhere in my house.  And I have no artwork in my bedroom right now, other than kid-art.  I deserve to have something I've made that I love in my room.  So I ordered 28-count Monaco (my fav fab) in Tea and some over-dyed threads from Threadworx - Rich Chocolate (which has a very subtle variegation) and Hidden Treasures.  Which I think was dyed just for me.

The pattern is from My Big Toe (hooray for Boise-area designers, boo for no more LNS to shop in) - "Great Is Thy Faithfulness," which is my all-time favorite hymn.  I plan to stitch this with some combination of Doro Theos to make a meaningful installation in my bedroom.  And I may not wait until 2014 to start!
