Better than nothing and new floss

I didn't get much done on the t-shirt quilt, but I did get the camo sashing pieces sewn together so that is better than nothing.
I spent part of my evening watering my cora bell bed and the ornamental grass hedge. We haven't had rain for over a week and things were dry. I was excited when I got the mail; the Leo and Roxy floss I had ordered about a week ago from www.evertote.com arrived! I thought that was fast since it came from Canada. I kept hearing about how wonderful Leo and Roxy floss was so I just had to try some for myself. It is considerably more expensive than DMC, but the floss is hand dyed, beautiful, and so smooth almost like silk. Now I just have to figure out a project to try it out on. I have a feeling I wish I would have bought more and probably will buy more.
Progress on the pastel deer pillow cover - it's coming along. Here is where I was and where I am
I have been doing my journal everyday. Today was to pour, spill, drip, spit, fling your coffee HERE. Since I don't drink coffee my leftover tea from yesterday was dumped on the journal.

The floss looks like beautiful quality and I like the slight changes in color in the hand dyeing. Shipping to and from Canada is so iffy for time it seems. Sometimes fast and other times weeks.

The new floss looks so silky! LOVE your stitches. The camp colors look great with those reds. Just keep plugging along. Even though we haven't had much rain lately, the weather sure is beautiful!
