Kelly at I Have A Notion (IHAN) is today’s blogger. And she is amazing–she broke her hand last week at Quilt Market and is still stitching and blogging away. I do not know how she does it.
And I have been browsing around the IHAN store. If you haven’t been there, you should stop in and browse. She has quite a wonderful selection of quilting and stitching and crafting supplies, but especially some wonderful machine embroidery supplies–there are some scissors there that I must have, and I want to try a couple of her stabilizers. In addition, she has a folio blank in several colors for machine embroidery that I think will make a perfect Christmas gifts with some of my machine embroidery designs on the insert instead of the monogram.
And yesterday I got a fabric package in the mail. This fabric is absolutely luscious. It is The Woodlands Palette hand dyed by Vicki Welsh. I have wanted to buy her fabric for a long time and finally took that big step. It is even nicer than I had imagined. The fabric is the perfect thread count for quilting and the colors are beautiful. I can see using some of the machine embroidery designs using this fabric. I love the gradations and the soft, clear intensity of these colors.
