Wonderfil Threads

Last week I visited Sew With Vision (Instagram link) in Halifax. It's not far from Bayers Lake Business Park, where I sometimes shop. This quilt store has lots of fabric, threads, patterns, notions etc. I was interested in seeing their line of Sue Spargo hand embroidery threads (saw them mentioned on FaceBook).

In the order of threads below, here's what I have: Razzle - 100% rayon, Eleganza Perle #8 (green & red), and Dazzle, a metallic rayon. I will probably use these in an underwater themed small piece.

Bluenose (latest Shimmer)

Learning curve for new phone!!! After several attempts, I finally edited and saved this photo to use in a post. My old phone took great photos but wasn't been upgraded so social media was thumbs down! Now, I have a Google Pixel 2 XL with fabulous camera, a bigger screen and lots to learn. 

Drying in the sun
The Bluenose is the latest Shimmer. It will debut this weekend at the Lunenburg Craft & Food Festival. If you are in the area, please drop by. You'll find us at booth 23 in the auditorium.
