More Of The Dress

I picked Cinderella back and worked a little on her dress. It's a huge dress so it doesn't look like much progress.

Cinderella
32 ct Charcoal Lugana

In better news, my LNS has finally got the Kreinik I was waiting for so I'll finish Celtic Spring after I pick it up. I've been waiting for this single braid since January. It's ridiculous how long it takes her to get stock in. It's frustrating because it's the only cross stitch store in the city and I want to support it so that it doesn't close down. But it takes so long that it's easier to order things online if I'm not browsing. Sigh.

Love your stitching,mi can understand your frustration our only local shop does not stock my preferred silk, but it would be a shame to lose it.

I'm glad you're supporting your local shop even if it takes so long to get stock in!
Cinderella is looking lovely.

At least they put the order in. The one time I tried (it's a knitting shop that has some needlework supplies), they forgot to send the order. I ended up ordering it on eBay and 2 months after receiving it and started using it, I get a call from the shop saying they just found my note. Haven't been back since.

Love how the dress is progressing.

My nearest LNS is an hour's drive. I go online for anything that I can't get at a big box craft store and that's most stitchy stuff. It is annoying!

That dress is going to be so striking on black!

When I used to have an LNS they were the same way to get anything in I had to wait for them to hit that company in the "ordering cycle". In the end I felt the service level was unacceptable I had to go online for things they didn't carry in store!
