Lovely colors.

My Independence Day weekend was pretty mellow... foreign magazine browsing at a local bookstore, craft store perusing, outlet shopping (inexpensive additions to my work/weekend wardrobe are always welcome), dinner/ice cream cake/disney movie watching with good friends, bbq with extended family... an excellent weekend, in my opinion. Oh, and I almost forgot Friday evening at the new section of the High Line: art installations/food trucks/beautiful wildflowers... how could I forget that?

Part of the craft store perusal was spending at least 10 minutes in front of the embroidery floss display, picking and choosing new colors to create more and different Kumi necklaces, and possibly a new bracelet design I've been thinking about.

I am just completely enamored with this spectrum and can't wait to get started working with it.

ooh, this is one of my favorite things to do, too. I don't buy with a specific project in mind, but I always buy a palette of current colours that I like - so that any time I *do* go digging, I have a few palettes' worth of colours to choose from.

glad you liked the necklace - yes, can you believe they wanted $600 for that? Highway robbery, I don't care *how* "antique" those trims are!! =)
