A new WIP! :)


My little town! This is the paper copy, on my design wall! I found the picture and had it increased in size.  I am totally over the moon with it and I am plotting and planning!

These are two more pictures.  I am in the midst of tracing and numbering but oh what fun!

I am linking up with the The Needle and Thread Network!



Do you use one? What is your threader method?

I ran into problems this week and I realized that I really can’t get by without one.

Back to basics, however, the wire on these so fine that they seem to break 😦 So:


I stocked up on wire needle threaders and bought a new clover desk threader and:


I picked up these needles and reused my old clover needle threader and lo and behold,  it works, so now I have a spare clover and back ups and these needles are perfect for hexing and applique.

What is your preference? Do you know something that I don’t know?
