Crazy for evenweaves

I have been looking for evenweaves to stock up for future projects which I have been wanting to do, but could only be done on evenweaves or linen because of the specialty stitches and 3/4 stitches involved.

I have been looking high and low at the LNSes and online, but wasn't too sure what and which to buy because I got confused by the many names evenweaves are being refered to. Finally I found a supplier in Jean from Needle Little Love from just across the causeway, Singapore!

Jean has the colours that I wanted in the count that I have been searching for - 28ct. That got me excited and I ordered in 3 colours!

Coincidentally, Margaret was going to Singapore for a few days and offered to bring back the evenweaves for me. I was restless in anticipation waiting for Margaret to get back to Kuala Lumpur! LOL!

We finally met up on Saturday, 12th August, so I could pick up my stash from Margaret, but, not before she enticed me into wanting to order more stash! LOL! *wink*

I had a great time flipping through the pages of Mar'garets french magazines which she brought along with her latest purchase of stash from Jean, which I also enjoyed looking. Really terrible for my purse, coz now I want them too! LOL! Yes, terrible this Margaret, isn't she? LOL!

BTW, Margaret also gave me some lovely stash - a fabric that looks like 14ct or 16ct Regina, a bright red cotton fabric and a lovely overdyed floss. Really nice! Thank you so much, Margaret!

I must now think of a project to use up my evenweaves and the stash Margaret just gave me too!
