Among the threads you see finger condoms.... about mid-week, when the callouses on my fingertips became unbearable, I had an idea and asked my husband to pick some up at the drugstore. And they work!.. they help you grip the needle better. I will never do extensive embroidery without them again.
I was traveling on personal business for the past two days. I am exhausted, but must get some packets together first thing tomorrow. I just found out that in August, I am headed to Seattle (for the first time!), and I need to send out some museum/gallery packets pronto.
