Fabric and yarn


I ended up at the clinic this morning with a thumb swollen red and twice its size. I thought maybe it was arthritis but apparently it's infected, possibly resulting from a crack in the dry skin near the nail. I got an antibiotic and instructions to watch it. No change yet for better or worse after 3 doses.

Since I was kind of lazy for the rest of the day, I thought I'd show you 2 recent purchases. One came by mail from the UK.

It's a company started by Linda and Laura Kemshall. They are a collection of 10 inch squares printed from the artists photographs. I love their work and just couldn't resist.

I don't have a project in mind for them yet.

The next item I purchased while away last weekend--a rather pretty ball of yarn. It is sport weight and I will use it to make socks, I think.

Well I can't quite believe this but I have the same pack of fabrics which came on Monday - aren't they beautiful! Love the rose fabric and the leaves.

I debated on ordering those fabrics, too! I had to restrain myself because it seems all I have been doing is buying lately..They are lovely though! You will have fun with them. And the yarn is gorgeous! Hope your thumb gets back to normal soon.

New fabric and new yarn, what could be better? Hope your thumb heals quickly.
