Thursday

Hi there!  I found myself on an archaeological dig in my sewing room yesterday and discovered some forgotten plunder from Quilt Market! My friend Keiko was at market, and she wanted to come by and say hi and introduce me to Minori Ikeda.  Minori is with Lecien and is the authority on Cosmo Threads!  The threads are lovely to work with and there is a rich palette of colors to choose from.  I know my favorite cross stitching duo Amanda and Ashleigh of the Frosted Pumpkin  use Cosmo floss as does the amazing Meg of Crabapple Hill who I think is pretty much legendary for her beautiful embroidered quilts. 

Keiko Clark and Minori Ikeda
Keiko  and Minori

It was great to meet Minori.  Keiko translated for her as her English was limited but I could tell she was catching on fast.  I look forward to seeing her.


Cosmo Thread

Minori generously gave me some floss bundles to share with my blog readers and that's what I found yesterday!   If you'd like a chance to win one of these bundles leave a comment and I'll pick a winner next week! 
 
Ok, see you back here on Sunday, it's Snapshots day!  xo
