Sparkly Thread and Stitchy Goodies!

So I have entered the first part of the Kreinik thread on Flames of Desire tonight. The sparkly part of the moon is so pretty, even if the picture doesn't do it justice:
Pretty Sparkly Thread!
I haven't had as many problems working with it at this point as I hear about frequently, crossing my fingers it stays that way!

I had some great goodies in my mail when I got home tonight from Pickle Barrel Designs!
Some Great Patterns from Pickle Barrel Designs

Thank you so much for these awesome patterns! I love them!

I also won my first traveling pattern from Jan over at Stitching Cats! The pattern is The Tribal Penguin by White Willow Stitching. Penguins are a special thing for me and my husband, and have been since we started dating. I have several penguins I have collected over the years in Christmas ornaments, decorative figurines, even a painting from Florence when we visited in college. I can't wait until I get it! It will definitely go into my rotation right away so that I can stitch it and send the pattern on it's way to another lucky person!

I've ordered my thread and fabric for my next two starts, so hopefully I'll have more goodies in the mail soon! All in all a good stitchy day!

Until next time!


  1. Desire is lookin' hot!

    Those are adorable patterns from Pickle Barrel. I especially like Lily.

  2. Great to hear that you like working with Kreinik =)
    Kreinik is not for me, it is a bit thick and threading the needle with it is a pain ;-) But I ordered 4 other sparkle threads (waiting for them to arrive) and hope to find something sparkling for me =)

  3. Pickle Barrel is awesome. :D

    I like Kreinik, I've never had a problem working with it except for some issues threading it in my needle! Hope it keeps going smoothly. :)

  4. Flames of Desire is going to be incredible! I had no idea the moon would be so sparkly. The tribal designs always look great. Congrats on getting the penguin!

  5. Project is going to be gorgeous! Can't wait to see it finished.

  6. LOL I am stitching Tribal Penguin right now! I have a penguin crazy grandson who I am stitching it for. I also went over to Tangled Thread and got a few small penguin designs for him the only thing I need is TIME!

    Love your Flames of Desire it is really looking great!
