Hi! My name is Julie. I like to stitch. I like to write. I like a challenge. Hence this blog. I get to write about stitching and learning to “love the blog” is a challenge!
But the real point of this blog is to comment on my travels around the country in a travel trailer–one local needlework shop (LNS) at a time. As I visit a shop, I ask the owner or staff present to identify their favorite thread, their favorite color of that thread, and the stitch they would most like to see that thread wearing. Then I buy the thread in the color and catalogue the info to be used in a sampler as yet to be designed.
I invite YOU to travel with me. And I challenge you to create a sampler using the information I mine in my travels. Hey! If you have an LNS, why don’t you ask the owner for the same info. Post it here with a link to the store and this project will become a National Treasure!
Along the way, I will also share info on resources, images to challenge you to come up with stitching ideas, and more!
Note: If you are like me and have difficulty reading some fonts or pages online. Try increasing the magnification of the screen. I keep mine set at 125% all the time. These poor stitching eyes need a break. Maybe yours do, too?
