This afternoon the mailman arrived at my door with a lovely parcel of goodies that I had ordered to treat myself.
I've been using the wonderful fork pins (Clover) on the right side of the picture to help with putting together The Quilt-zzzz thanks to my friend loaning me some to try out. They are so helpful that I decided I had to have some of my own. Not that I plan to be putting together any more quilts (!!) but they will be handy when I need perfectly matched seams.
Two new thimbles to try out; a disappearing marker; some new sewing pins and a package of 6 spools of 'Cotton Petites' threads by Sulky. According to the package "One strand of 12 wt. Cotton Petites equals two strands of typical embroidery floss" - it will be fun to play with these. The colours are wonderful!!
For those of you who like to embroider, you might find the tutorials HERE of interest (found via Judy Cooper...thank you!). And for those of you who like stumpwork, or just want to make a sweet little ladybug, go HERE for a tutorial.
Today the quote is from Allen Klein.... "We become so overwhelmed by illness, death and grief that we forget that humour, like the moon, can bring light to our darkest times"
