April is almost here and thank heavens we've had a few "April Showers".
To get us all in the mood for April we've put our Parasol Princess kit on sale for 25% off.
Stitching on it's cheery fabrics will drive away any "blahs" the showers might bring.
While we're talking about stitching I should stop and talk about thread - that's our subject for this week. I mainly use a 60 weight thread to appliqué with - of course matching the color of the thread to the appliqué, not the background.

Sorry ladies but we forgot to include page #2 (the one with the directions) of the beeskep block.
I could post the original pdf here so you can read it but don't know how to make is available for download. I just sent it to Moda again and if you go to http://unitednotions.com/blockheads_04_beeskep.pdf it will be there.
We'll get all of these kinks worked out by the end, we promise :)
And for those of you who want some tips on appliqué, I have done a whole series of You Tube tutorials that you can watch at
If you're really new to appliqué start with the "Basics" series.
Just copy the address and put it in your browser.
Have fun ladies, there's a whole new world to be explored out there.
