Random Act of Kindness

I have always said that stitching friends are the best ones to have. However, I believe that more all the time. The more I participate in groups on facebook, watching flosstube, and the interaction I have with those that read my blog, it really renews my faith in goodness and that there are people in the world that do what is right and take care of each other. It seems that you see so much destruction and discontent in our world these days and it just warms my heart to be a part of a group that is so kind and gracious.

My friend Susan saw that I liked the Lavender and Lace and Told in a Garden patterns from my posts here on the blog and she sent me some gifts. I didn't have any of the ones that she sent me and she also sent an Elsa Williams kit that is beautiful. I can't wait to start them all.

Judith Kirby Halloween Houses

Are you looking for these? They are out of print and going for huge prices on ebay or stash selling groups. However, as I was watching a flosstuber (Reading and Stitching), she mentioned that there was a store in Michigan that has them for retail. I called them on Friday and the designer has given this store permission to reprint. They are selling them for 9.95 each and I am very excited to have gotten them both. Stitch N Time can be reached at 989-781-5209. They were super nice on the phone and more than happy to help with this purchase.

By the way, you can also read the Reading and Stitching blog here.

Game of Thrones Tapestry

I always love to see anything needlework related and especially when it is featured in a popular television show or event that many will have access to. I just think this craft needs to be kept alive and engage others to want to become a part of the community and produce their own works. I thought you might all be interested in this.

Under the Sea Fabrics Sale

Under the Sea Fabrics is my favorite place to buy hand dyed fabric. I met Leslie a little over two years ago at a retreat and she is just fantastic. The sale going on right now is the Anniversary sale from when she first opened her business. You will get 15% off your total purchase and just use the code Anniversary17 at checkout. The sale ends the last day of September. Be sure and tell her that I sent you.

Leslie will also be opening up some spots to join her Fabric of the Month program at the end of September/first of October. She has a large variety of options available and at different price ranges to fit all budgets.

Thread Heaven

Do you use Thread Heaven?? I do and am disappointed to find out that the company owners are retiring and they will no longer be in business. They announced on their facebook page yesterday and that they no longer have any stock, everything has been shipped out. So, when the stores sell all they have, that will be it for this product. I know there are other brands and you can use beeswax but if this one is your favorite, you should stock up now before it is all gone.
