Here's a good Tuesday tip if your thread gets all twisted when you're stitching...
I just let my needle and thread dangle freely until it untwists itself!
Here's something else...

Have you ever noticed the dramatic change that takes place from having all your precut wool/wool felt pieces pinned or glued in place and then seeing that project completely embroidered?
It's fun to take before and after photos!  It sure makes you feel quite accomplished!!!  It's also great for keeping a nice record of your works!

This one was my "Layer's of My Heart" design that started out with my kit and shows the amazing transformation from wool felt to embroidered wool felt.
  What a difference, right?!!
One of my students decided to place buttons in the center for a very pretty change.  I love that idea!  Never be afraid to put your own spin on things!
And, by all means, feel free to send your photos to me.  I'd be happy to post them, if you let me!!!
Happy Stitching, Everyone!!!

Here's a tip if you make a mistake when stitching...
I always keep a pair of tweezers on hand so when I cut away the stitches I want to take out, it's easy to pull all those loose threads from the back with my tweezers!
Happy Stitching!!!

Had so many leftover empty thread spools from the business and in honor of keeping things environmentally green I tried my hand at making some ornaments out if them for gifts this year. Here's one...

By the way...Praying for everyone to have a Supernatural God-breathed, God-filled, Healthy, Happy, and Prosperous NEW Year!!!!!! xoxox
