Vikki Clayton

I got the Vikki Clayton silks that ordered earlier in the other day. And boy am I glad I did! The colors are just beautiful and they feel so pretty! (Can things "feel pretty"? I think so. ) I bought all of the colors with the word "Dragon" in the title. (I missed one, though)

From L to R: Dragon Toes, Dragon Tongue, Dragon Breath II, Dragon Blood, Dragon Claw, Dragon Droppings, Earth Dragon, Dragon Opal (my fave), Dragon Hoard (DH's fave)

I've already started using the Dragon Opal. I'm making a scissor fob for myself. That way DH will quit laughing at me when I can't find my scissors. I try to blame the cat, but it doesn't seem to work. ;) I hated cutting the first threads off, but it is stitching up so pretty. I have the first half done. I'll probably finish it this weekend.

By using the silks on the fob, I have decided that I made the right choice in deciding to use the silks for my memorial piece for Granddad. I also bought a piece of Vikki's linen to use. I'm sure that it will be just as wonderful. I'm really looking forward to getting them. I'm only stitching on smalls right now, because I don't want to pick up a large piece until I can start on my Bushel and a Peck.

Those are beautiful colors. I can't wait to see the fob.

Beautiful colors. Stitching with silk does feel great doesn't it? It has somehow so vibrant colors.
