Goodies From Today’s Road Trip

We decided since it was going to be such a nice day to take a road trip north to Princeton.  Found a new bagel shop for a quick bite this morningbefore heading over to Lake Carnegie to watch some college rowing.  Gorgeous day outside.  No trip to Princeton is complete without a stop at my favorite little thread shop, Needles and Pins.  My haul for today was some beautiful hand dyed South African yarn, hand dyed silk ribbon, hand dyed gimp and a big handful of  perle cotton in size #3 and #5.

Have already started stitched with the South African yarn.  It is working out extremely well on my new design.

Like how it has a more rustic texture.  Tonight has more stitching with my new threadsm
