Sharon B of Pintangle is doing a re-run of her Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge. If you are interested in learning some new embroidery stitches or brushing up on some old ones, this is a great opportunity and it is free. It starts after the first of the year and you can read about it here. I just signed up. Hope you'll join in.
I am patiently waiting for my new Kindle Fire. I should have received it already. Looks like it's coming via a slow boat through China. But it's ok because it's giving me time to make a nice soft holder for it using some plush cloth I used in the past for making teddy bears, some of Heike's beautiful dyed silk and my grandmother's old thread (wish I had more of this).
