Anna Maria Horner Needleworks Floss

So excited to see this in her shop! We saw it debut at the Quilt Market in Salt Lake a few months ago. I just love her color pallets. Now the really tough question-which one to get first?

I am excited to see if she puts out any embroidery or cross stitch patterns-that would be lovely!! I just love to crochet with the Pearl Cotton too-and you can't find it in such pretty colors very often. I am so excited to get a project going with these! Any one else? or I am out on a crafting limb here?

Working on some Make and Take projects for the Quilt Show and Expo that is coming to Kansas City in October. This is our first consumer show, and we are so excited! Just trying to come up with a fun quick project...harder than it sounds :) Also tossing around a kit for kids to learn-what do you think? How did you learn? Any good ideas out there?

I taught my middle niece last night with just a simple hand drawn design. We did her initial and some flowers on a satin ribbon. She LOVED it! It was so much fun and gratifying to teach her. I just love those girls-lucky me :)
Okay, off to more brainstorming in the Air Conditioning (thank goodness--its over 100 here today)!
