Yesterday was a good mail day! Both my hoop boning (from Online Fabric Store
) and sequins (from Cartwright's Sequins
) came - yay!
The sequins - SPARKLY! In addition to the two colors of 3mm gray sequins (I wasn’t sure which was going to be the right color so I got both) I randomly ordered some flat 2.5mm in gold, silver and iridescent clear.
The gold and silver are so tiny and cute - I can't wait to put them on something!
The iridescent clear are going to be packed away in my hope chest. They will look amazing scattered on a wedding veil someday... *sigh*
Yeah I think I may have opened a Pandora's box (I love embellishing with small sequins!) and Cartwright's
will be getting lots more of my business in the future. The not-so great website had me a little worried but apparently they have a brink and mortar business as well. The check-out was painless and easy, the shipping reasonable and fast. Yep I'll be a repeat customer!
