A New Finish

I got the linen thread I was waiting for this morning - many thanks Jayne - and was able to finish my Kissy Cross Mystery sampler tonight.
I havent put a border on as I don't really feel that it needs one but I can always add one if I feel it needs it once I have a frame. That will have to wait until after the holidays though.
I also had a note from Jayne (Jaynes Attic) to say that she had posted my Dinky Dyes silks out to me this morning so I shall be stalking the postie on Monday in the hopes that they arrive.
Not that I will be using them for a good while yet. They are for my Chatelaine, Taj Mahal, project and I still have all the Carron Waterlillies threads to get and the Delica beads. I have no idea where I am going to get the beads from as when I looked on-line for a supplier I couldn't makes heads or tails of what I was supposed to be ordering. Does anyone know if there is someone who supplies a bead pack for this chart.
Tomorrow will see (hopefully) a start on the last project in my rota, which should mean I could soon be starting something new, but with the holidays coming round fast I think I will just stick with the Garden Alphabet until we go.

I´m enclosing a link to Cindy at ECC - she supplies bead pack for the Taj Mahal. She is very good to buy from - I got my supplies from her for my Mystery X kit. Here is the link:

It should take you straight to the right page. If not please e-mail me for help.

All the best,
