All set to go!

I spent over an hour at my LNS on Friday trying to decide on linen and threads for Beatrix. I went in with the idea of getting rose pink silks but fell in love with a Waterlilies thread called "Chili" instead. It's a blend of orangey-pinks, corals, pale pinkish-beige, etc. I found 3 beautiful Needlepoint Silks that went with it, and I picked out Vintage Maritime White linen by Lakeside in 36-ct. The Needlepoint Silks look a little bright in this photo but they really match the varigated thread just perfectly. I'm really happy with it. Here's my floss toss - I can't wait to get started on this!
