A Little Hexie Project + giveaway winner
Over our Spring Break last week I decided to start a little english paper piecing project (say that 3 times fast!) I was out of town, up in Spokane WA and had forgotten to bring my current epp project with me. So I stopped by one of the quilt shops and picked up a few supplies – enough to get me started.
While I was there, one of the helpful employees pointed me in the direction of this thread:
She said it’s the best thread for epp and it’s the ONLY thread she uses. With a glowing recommendation like that, I figured I’d better try it out. Even after using it just for these few hexies, I’m sold. Normally my stitches are completely visible from the front, but as you can see below, the stitches barely show. I’m a believer. The woman recommended this particular color of thread too – she said it pretty much blends in to everything. So there you go! I’m passing along the tip to you!
And now, for what you’ve been waiting for – the winner of the Home Executive Planner giveaway is….
Heidi [Banks of Frog Creek] !! Congratulations Heidi! Thank you all for entering. Now I've got to get back to that pile of laundry. For me, that's the WORST part of taking a vacation - all of the laundry that needs to be done once you're home - ugh!
