A few weeks ago I ordered some Anchor pearl cotton from the UK. If you’ve been around here for a little while, you know how much I love my Anchor threads. They’re just beautiful for big stitch quilting and embroidery. I was running low on my stash and I wasn’t about to wait until I ran out. They arrived this week and made me very happy. It is a large assortment, enough to keep me going for another year. Maybe. They’re so hard to resist. Wouldn’t it be a great job to create collections of pearl cotton? I’d be in a little bit of color heaven selecting the different colors. I’m a little jealous that Anna Maria got to do this for her threads.
In the next week or so, you’ll be able to see one of my quilts featuring big stitch quilting and Anchor pearl cotton in a magazine. Keep an eye out for the Sept/Oct issue of Generation Q! I think you’re going to love my Any Color You Choose quilt.
Things are still busy in my little sample sewing sweatshop but I’m trying hard to balance it all with some relaxation and down time. How are things at your house? Ready for the weekend?
