New fabrics and threads

Some nice packages arrived this week: some fabric and books from Japan, and a couple of sets of embroidery thread from Sublime Stitching. I can't wait to try my new metallic and glow in the dark threads. I'm not doing a lot of embroidery or close up work though, until I get my new glasses. Thankfully the tests I had yesterday revealed no retina problems, although the pressure is on the high side. I have to repeat the tests in six months and go back immediately in the meantime if the flickering comes back.

This weekend I'll be making a few more string blocks for a swap, and generally taking it easy as the temperatures forecast are in the high 30s/low 40s C range. A good time to drink iced coffee.

Ohhh, tons of fun stuff! That fabric is darling. You'll like your new threads, especially the glow in the dark ones- so fun! As for the metallics, I am still 50/50 with those ones and the DMC. Both are nice, but you can't separate the Sublime St. one's, which I like to do sometimes. But I was just using the SS ones' yesterday and I love how bright they look. I'll share pics this weekend.
