‘Floriani Product’ …. in the wild!

Look at this.

The maker calls it a Butterfly Bowl. I couldn’t imagine what it looked like from the name… but she also sent a picture. Just beautiful!

Luna Moth Basket Susie Bierman

Lina took advantage of the ‘Clearance Sale’ and snapped up a bunch of the Floriani Variegated thread and sent the picture with permission to share.

The butterfly (Luna Moth) is Machine Embroidered, using the same thread top and bobbin so the back side is just as pretty as the top.

Still lots of Floriani in the shop…. and the price can’t be beat! HALF off!

Its NOT over yet!

Nope…. there are still plenty of items on Clearance at I Have a Notion!
Have I mentioned thread? Floriani Thread in particular. If you machine embroider, this is a deal. $2.99 per  mini cone.  1100 yards shiny polyester thread. At this price you can certainly fill in some of those missing colors or enhance your color library.

I don’t think there is a better price for this thread anywhere else!
You don’t embroider? Do you know someone that does? Send them a link! and thanks for passing it on.

On another note… I have another house guest. This one is of a different variety though.
Just about every where I have lived… I have had a resident pair of doves. When we moved into this house, we had a pair that had a nest on a drain spout under the eaves. A hawk got the female… and that was that. While we have had as many as 14 doves around the feeder at one time, none had taken up a nest where I could see them. This year is different. This fellow (males sit the nest during the day, females at night) is about 3 feet away from the front door. In about 2 weeks there should be some hungry little mouths… up there.

More to come later! Including and Pupdate on Goldie- Beth

and it Continues!!!

EVERYTHING in the store 50% off!!!

Featuring FLORIANI Thread

(Great for machine embroidery, longarm quilting or thread painting/sketching).

Beautiful sheen, 100's of colors


Don't wait some colors are getting low! and a few are gone!

I am a recent finder of the Floriani thread, and I have been playing with it on the longarm. I think it is a finer thread than Glide, which is a 40 weight thread, so it does not show quite as much, something I like. And by not showing quite as much the sheen is a little less as well, again something I like.

One of the other things of note is that Glide likes to untwist while traveling from the spool/cone to the needle, on my longarm, as I hear, also on many other longarms as well. The Floriani does not seem to do that!


More Later!! Beth

That Surprise Quilt and More

I eluded to a surprise quilt I was making and I got it finished.  It is now safe to share the photos of the process....since the recipient now has possession of said quilt.

When my sister was visiting she happened to see some fabric in my stash that she said she really liked.  Her birthday was coming up so I decided to make her a quilt.  I had to choose something rather simple if I were going to get it put together in a day or two.

 Here I am zipping along.....I just pieced and pieced and pieced.

McSteamy saw that I was working feverishly and he offered to help.  I'm no fool...I said sure can help me cut the borders.  He wanted me to cut the 7" border straight down the length of fabric and was frustrated when I told him I wasn't going to do that.  The large piece above....yes that one....McStamy thought it was scrap and I would be throwing it away.  I laughed out loud for quite some time.  Then I explained that Mary Jane and many other quilting friends keep even the smallest of scraps and he could be shot for even thinking about throwing away such a large piece of perfectly good fabric.

Then he asked if this tiny piece would be ok to toss...well...that is small enough...don' you think?
 I was floored that he spent the evening helping me and even spent time pinning the borders with me. Sooooo sweet.  I had not met George Siciliano at this point...and thank God because I would not have let McSteamy near my quilt if I even thought for a minute that he would take off and become an amazing quilt artist...LOL.

Two days and it was in the mail to Joanne over at Splitting Stitches Blog and at Insanely Cheap Quilting Blog too.  Joanne does such a beautiful job and she is so fast.  I don't think you can beat the quality and price anywhere...I've always been very pleased when I got my quilts back :)

From start to finish this quilt was completely finished in about 8 days and then given to my sister.

 Here she is...Tracy absolutely loves her quilt.  I even made a pillow case to match and she is tickled pink.  I'm in a heap of trouble my Mom wants one for her birthday....which is TOMORROW.  Yikes...hope she doesn't mind getting an IOU.

Last week was nuts....Thursday night was guild, Friday night both boys had baseball games, and Saturday was Cub Scout Crossover.
 Each year I add to the banner.  I join each panel with a large zipper so they can be removed and changed.  My girlfriend, Diane, saved my life and embroidered all this years names at the last minute.  I had the banner ready but forgot the names may change....ding dong...LOL.

Then on Sunday we had a birthday party at the house for Zachary's classmates.  We had 15 little monkeys

here at the house and Zach had a ball.  Afterwards we gave him his gift from the parents....oh he was excited to get a new bicycle.

As if all that was not crazy enough....I then had to get everything done for the IHAN Blow Out Sale on my website.  I guess I just don't plan ahead very well....I am truly flying by the seat of my pants each day and I'm frequently amazed that I'm still breathing at the end of the day.

Here are a few examples of the amazing deals to be had over at I Have A Notion: 

I think these bags are an excellent value.  They are top quality and you could not make one for the price.  They are all from the Bagamore Collection and are $40.00 OFFClick here to see them...scroll down the page.

There is so much more....14 pages of amazing deals....the sale ends tomorrow so hop on over and help me out....please!  I need to reduce my inventory as it is taking over my house....LOL.
