Chapter forty-four – Don’t touch my threads!

previously on The grey tailI’ve shown you more kitty pictures and a few delicious things.

– – –

only a couple of days left before I go to the needlework fair, YAY! I must say I’m in full fair-mode. I prepared a list of things I need with colour choices and sizes (mainly Grigoletto linens and ThreadworX pearl cotton threads for the Brodierie Suisse projects); things I reserved and things I want to take a look at in person; things I hope to find at a better price; ..

I also wrote down a few stand numbers so that I can orientate a little better. thursday might be a bit more crowded than I expected, nevertheless I will be there cause I signed up for a Broderie Suisse course with Maria Concetta Ronchetti/Antichi Ricamithere are Stitching Olympics contests as well, with two races for the fastest stitcher every day and a final champion announced at the end of the fair. now I will pass on this cause I can’t stay long enough for the second round, while as the first one is taking place I’ll still be driving to the fair. even so, I thought it was a pretty cool idea, you can read a little about it here.

now off to the patty cake 🙂

  1. He’s just so darn cute! And at least the threads were in bags 🙂 That cake dish is beautiful! Nice find 🙂 Have a GREAT time at the fair – I wish we had things like that near me…

  2. Great post as always, Chiara. I love, love, love the cute buttons and the cake dish is divine! Just going to hop on a plane and come over and “borrow” them for a while! lol! I might bring Taras Babba home with me for a visit with Furio and Milo, too. He would love Eaglemont.
    Love to you both, Kaye xoxoxo
