Manic Monday

I got this little guy stitched out yesterday:

Mylar Snowman 005

and this one this morning.

Mylar Snowman 007

You put mylar underneath the thread you want to sparkle and it gives the effect of metallic thread without all the headaches that metallic thread can cause and it’s also a whole lot cheaper.

Bridge went well today – I had very patient partners.  I had my cheat sheets with me so they helped a lot when it came to bidding.  I think bridge is one of those games that you never really master, you are always learning.

I just got a call a few minutes ago to fill in at a Quilting Retreat this weekend.  Now I need to get busy and get some things cut to work on.  Not sure when exactly I’m going to do that as it’s Stitch N Chat tomorrow, bowling tomorrow night then I work Wednesday and Thursday. 

I swear for months I do nothing, then everything happens at once!

Very cute. I like the trick about using mylar. Is there a special place you buy this mylar and a special weight? I've never given this a try before, but would like to.

Your snowmen are so cute!

Love the snowmen! I don't embroider but the mylar trick sounds like a great tip.

Sweet! I know what you mean about things coming in bunches. Already next year is filling up with projects! It's going to be a busy year. I love to play bridge!
