July Cottage Floss Toss

July Cottage came in the mail this week minus one of the flosses which prompted a trip to my LNS to look for the Aged Pewter I needed to start. Lucky I did go as a lot of you know who work with hand dyed fibers know, sometimes they' The Blue Beatrice that came from the store I buy from online was nearly the same blue as the lighter Blue Betty. Thankfully my LNS had a different dye lot which was darker and looked more like the example photo. It's still not as dark as the one in the example on the pattern, so to be safe I got a skein of WDW in Americana. No other color changes in this one but I did add two Glissen Gloss Rainbow blending filaments to add sparkle to the fireworks. I'm usually not into Fourth of July as a cross stitching theme but I LOVE this. It's just so fun. I'm off to work on it now and power watch some United States of Tara. I love  instant watching and cross

Seeing that blue is my favourite colour, I know I'm biased but I still gotta say, what lovely threads ^.^
