A Sweet RAK and a Finish too!



First off, I received this sweet little biscornu from Ranae of The Needle and I. It is autumn biscornu by Helga Mandel. Isn't it cute? I love receiving surprises in the mail. She also sent me a skein of dmc variations. Thank you so much Ranae!

Next up is a finish called dye by Monsterbubbles! It was a limited edition kit released at Nashville this year. It came with a little piece of white fabric and some blueberry kool-aid. I dyed the fabric with the kool-aid first in this case and then I stitched. I think it came out cute-though you don't get much fabric. It is meant to be finished into a pinkeep. The kit does come with seed beads for the making of the pinkeep. This was a fun little stitch.



Lastly, I want to thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes and comments on my photos. You all know how to make a girl feel good! I hope everyone has a great week!

I don't think I've ever heard of dyeing fabric with Kool-Aid! I know what it does to my kitchen counters, so maybe I'll have to try it!

The biscornu is very cute, what a fun surprise to get. Love your new finish, the fabric looks wonderful dyed with the koolaid and what a fun saying. I haven't tried dying with Koolaid, but after seeing a number of pieces done with it I'll need to try it sometime.
