the slow stitcher

In search of MacAulvey Manor.

My timing’s wonderful. Just when Needle Necessities is going out of business, I find the perfect colour for Cirque des Cercles – MacAulvey Manor (#1270). And as luck would have it, I can’t find any store that has six skeins of it in their inventory. And of course, no other thread out there comes close to it. I’ve tried Nordic Needle (no stock) and am now waiting to hear from JJ’s Collectibles. Hopefully they have some left!

Sigh. I should have been a bit quicker with the decision making. But then I didn’t think I’d be starting CdC anytime soon. Not that I will start it immediately if I get my hands on the thread, but it’s nice to know it’s in my stash, aye.
