Stitch on Prints
Welcome to "In The Boon Docks"! 2014 is going to be the year of Experiments. "Stitch on Prints" is taking a turn from hand stitching only to include experiments in the use of different weights of threads along with varying stitch sizes on your personel sewing machine to create unique looks!
The Giveaway of (2) 12 wt small spools of thread is provided by Aurifil.
Please visit our sponsor sales links provided below when you need a new spool.
Let's Learn about Threads
Something different - take a few minutes and watch a few YouTube videos about threads. When I started sewing I knew nothing about threads. When I had trouble with breakage the ladies at my LQS said change brands. Then I learned about Aurifil and I will never turn back.
Quilty: Different types of thread for quilting
Recently, Aurifil and the wonderfully talented Pat Sloan have released several videos
Linda Douglas - Sage to aqua blends to make a 26" square cotton wall hanging; machine pieced and top stitched with Aurifil 2024 #40wt. and hand embroidered Aurifil 2850 #12wt. for the bird block image.
I was super excited when Rachel @ Stitched In Color agreed to let me share her photo of her quilting with 12 wt. thread! She is one of my favorite bloggers.
A mini quilt from my very talented friend Amy @ [Amy's] Crafty Shenanigans made for a Doll Quilt Swap!
This beautiful hand work was done by Gina Happy Go Lizzie from flickr. Her photostream is filled with items I would love. She has a real talent when it comes to color and creating!
Look what it did for this pillow!
It is a treasure everyone would like in their home!
