Published again and some stash acquisition !! :)

Thank you for your appreciation for Julia Blackwork !!:)

I haven't made much progress to share but I do have something else to show and be happy about :)

My Crochet stool cover pattern was published in April-June 2016 Anchor Needle n' Thread magazine , India

It is a quarterly magazine and here is my pattern :)

I also acquired some stash in the past 2 months.

Bag handles

Anchor skeins, crochet cotton size 20 and acrylic ice batik yarn

Anchor knitting cotton and purse threads.
All of these are purchased from Pradhan Embroidery stores in India

Raj was in US for two weeks in the month of April . I did not ask to get anything but when he was roaming around in Target, he got these fabrics and buttons for me .

I have switched over from Jo-Ann's shopping to Deramores UK online to explore other yarns and this is my first Deramores order . I am quite happy with their fast delivery.

I got different brands of DK and sports weight cotton yarns to try and will order more based on which one I like the most .
Cascade ultra pima, Sirdar,Wendy supreme,Patons, Classique

Debbi Bliss, DMC Natura, Rowan Cotton Glace, Sublime eqyption

I am going on a family vacation from next week and will be back to blogland after few weeks . I may not have access to internet and hopefully by month end I will share the details about my trip once we are back .

Have a great day!
