I can finally put the 12' garland of quilted circles into the inventory box! Wow, that was a lot of handstitching. It's weird to work on holiday stuff at this time of year, but I'll be ready for shows which always seem to be right around the corner. The original garland inspiration came from here -- the same but different.
Common Threads is a yarn store in Encinitas that I like to go to. I was hankering for some yarn (esp after seeing the Coraline video) and came home with a little more than I intended, plus needles in sizes 2.25mm and 3.5mm. I should have shopped my own stash first, but it was an excuse to help our economy. ;-)
I love these yarns, esp the one with the attached beads.
