Fun, A Finish & A Find

Hi all,

FUN:  Yesterday I went to Bush Mountain's Superbowl Sunday "Stitch-In" and it was a really fun afternoon!  Shopping 20% off sale, catered lunch, door prizes, giveaways ---all that AND met some really nice people not to mention finally got to meet Maeann & Gary Bush after several weeks of cyber friendship on FaceBook.  :)  I can honestly say that their shop is my #1 favorite.  It's great to go into a shop and have the owners as happy to have their customers as their customers are to have their shop available to them!  I will be a customer for life.

FINISH:  Maeann set aside the newest L*K release  "A Little Love"... here is it finished.  It's a kit and it was a QUICK stitch.  I've told myself I need to learn to frame my own pieces and I think this is a good one to start with.  (Stay tuned)


FIND:  Maybe I've been living under a rock, but I just yesterday discovered a FANTASTIC product called "Thread Heaven".  I have to say, using it on silks with linen for the "A Little Love" was great and made a noticable difference in how the thread glided, was less apt to catch or tangle.  I will use this each and every time I stitch from now on. You can check it out for yourself at www.threadheaven.com.

Lunch hour is over -- more soon and just keep stitching! ~Nicole

    1. Tracey, thanks for the compliment! I used the suggested Crescent Colours for the pattern -- did you get yours yet? (Do you want me to email you the list so you can get yours and can hit the ground running when the pattern arrives?) Let me know~ Nicole
