Exciting New Stitches
I've confessed that I tend to collect scissors, and I love pretty scissors. I am in awe of this beautiful Heirloom Embroidery Accessories set. It includes a pair of 4-inch embroidery scissors, a 3/4-inch thimble, a 2 3/4-inch bodkin, a 3 1/2-inch needle case and a 4 3/4-inch awl, each elegantly embossed with a delicate floral design. The tools come in a beautiful heirloom box that makes storing and finding them a cinch. The set, which is limited in availability, retails for $84.99 and can be purchased here.
With the coming of Christmas and New Year's, I automatically start thinking about spring and the bursts of color that will be coming in only a few short months. To tide me over until my garden starts blooming, I like to stitch using bright colors as much as possible. One of my new favorite collections is the Cotton Petites Brights; these fine embroidery flosses hail from Sulky and are a breeze to stitch with on nearly everything. This particular set boasts colors such as watermelon pink, moss green and bright yellow. To learn more or to order, click here.
