Bought a bit of stash on Saturday. Picked up the new limited edition of Gingher embroidery scissors - the Glory pattern. I also bought a few of the newest Prairie Schooler patterns and "Meadow Hills" from By the Bay Needlearts. They had a model at my LNS done on 40 count pale blue linen in silks. It hooked me!
Rachel had asked me how I attach my cording. When I am doing something firm like the finishes in my blog entry below, I glue the cording on with Aleene's Tacky Glue. Those projects were 2 pieces of mat board glued and sewed together and it makes it easy to glue on the cording around it. For soft things such as this ornament, I whip stitch the cording on and try to use matching thread so it doesn't show much.
I was looking at the pictures from the tornado in Kansas tonite. Wow - I cannot even imagine winds of 205 miles per hour! It must have been terrifying for those people. It really makes you count your blessings when you realize everything you own could be gone in a couple of minutes.
