NPIs arrived

missing NPIs

Here are the missing NPIs for A Most Noble Pursuit. They actually sent me the full skeins instead of the stated number of strands! You can see there were quite a few colours missing, 15 in all. I am stunned that I actually managed to get the colours right when sorting them out in the first instance. I was dreading that they would send me them then find I had made a mistake with some of the colours and still end up having to order more. But all is well and now I am fully kitted up ready to start. Kate at Thread Bear has been wonderful in getting NPI to send them out so quickly. So maybe this may be my new start this month! We'll see....
Have a good Bank Holiday. I am on my own this weekend as DH has gone away again!! xx

Whoo hoo! Glad you got the threads you needed. I can't imagine how you went through the bag of floss - I would have gotten too frustrated. Have a lovely weekend.

Cheryl's bouquet is gorgeous. What a wonderful idea to make it into a pillow. My friend Brenda & I hope to start this beautiful bouquet soon. I am very excited.
The pictures of your adorable Lily at the World of Beatrix Potter are so sweet. Childhood is wonderful!!!

Oooo, don't they look pretty. Now you can start your "Noble.." piece? Can't wait to see it in progress! I've never seen it being stitched, so it should be fun. Love your blog!

The colors of the threads are so pretty and was able to resolve it so quickly. Hope you had a great weekend.

Wendy said...

Wow - those colours are so gorgeous! And how great that you got full skeins. That helps to make up for the fact that they were missing. Good luck with your start! I'm looking forwards to progress pics :-)

Oh, so glad you got the NPI Silks, Hazel and so wonderful they sent you the full skeins! :-) I should have mine by the end of the month... Drema told me my fabby was in last week when I talked with her... and she's making sure she has the NPI Silks for my next order the last week in May... So, it looks like a June Start for me... What about Midsummer's Eve? I've got so much stitching to catch up on... :-)

Thanks for visiting my blog Hazel. I am really enjoying blogging so far. Of course it has only been a few days but I am already meeting other interesting stitchers and getting to see their work. BTW, the love your Mermaid!
