WIP: Wedding Sampler [4]

I got a little more stitching done on the wedding sampler today. Finished up most of the ribbon. Started on the hearts.

But the bigger news is that I found a website where I could buy the extra Gentle Arts Sampler Threads I needed for just $2.00 per skein, and no shipping charges! So I went through my entire GAST stash and bought 10 skeins so that I'll have plenty on hand.

The site is called They carry lots of specialty fibers including:
  • Caron Collection
  • Carrie's Creation
  • Crescent Colours
  • Dinky Dyes
  • DMC
  • Divine Threads
  • Ginnie Thompson Flower Thread
  • Kreinik
  • Needlepoint Inc.
  • Northern Lights
  • Olde Willow Stitchery
  • Rainbow Gallery
  • River Silks
  • Silk & Ivory
  • The Gentle Art
  • The Pure Palette
  • Weeks Dye Works
And you can pay either by credit card or PayPal.

I hope the service is superb and that the fibers arrive in a reasonable amount of time. It's great to be able to find good sources for fibers. In my neck of the woods, the shops have some of the fibers, but usually not the full line, and rarely the one color I need.

And yay for you about the Panic Plunge. Know what you mean about shoving that comfort zone ocasionally.
Did you know I've actually done a bungee jump? Off a perfectly good bridge too.
