Back to work. Vacation is over :(

I'm now back from vacation. My family and I had a great time in DC but it is nice to be back at home. I spent most of the weekend doing laundry and unfortunately, very little stitching. Although, I was able to stitch some in the hotel. Hopefully, I will be able to finish my "travel" project this week.

I'm going to post some items that may have already arrived in the shop as well as, things that are on the way. It looks like I missed out on some great things while I was gone and I want to share what I found with you.

A new 12 part series will be releasing in mid-August called....

Country Cottage Ornaments - Classic Collection

The ornaments in this series will all be different sizes and done with a variety of fabrics and flosses. A button from Just Another Button Co. will also be used but it is optional. It is not included with the designs. In keeping with the "classic" Christmas theme, all the ornaments will be done in the colors of red, green and white. The first ornament will release in August and is called "Angels".  Sign up now! You don't want to miss out on this wonderful new series.

The final part in the Sun, Moon & Stars series. I like these designs together. It would make a nice shop model. I think I will suggest it. I'm sure that Carol needs something to do (ha ha).

"Wine Is" is the first design in a new collection called A Joyful Life. This collection is all about those little or big things that bring us joy, happiness, etc.  Sometimes it might be just a saying that you may relate to. I can relate to "Coffee is a cup of Bliss". I'm having my 2nd cup of bliss right now :)

Thread Length - How Long should you cut your thread?

Well, I suggest using a length that is comfortable for you but remember, if you try to work with a really long length, it tends to tangle and get knotted. If you work with a short length, you will be threading your needle more often. A recommended length is 18" - 20" or twice that if the thread will be doubled for the loop method. Again, find a length that works for you. Also, metallic threads should be cut a little shorter to help prevent fraying.
