This isn’t exactly an article about embroidery thread. It’s more about Me, the Meany.
I’m mean on two accounts. One, you’re expecting me to talk about a subject most embroiderers love – embroidery thread – and I’m not going to! (Sorry!) And two, I gave this puzzle to my mom for Christmas, even though I knew it would drive her nuts. (Actually, I think, deep down, she liked it.)
For all you puzzle fans out there who happen to embroider… or for all you embroiderers out there who happen to like putting together puzzles… Springbok has a 1500 piece puzzle available that features a heap of colorful embroidery floss, up close and personal. Try not to let the fact that they’ve titled it “Yards of Yarn” bug you.
I don’t really do puzzles much myself, so I wouldn’t know exactly how to rate this puzzle, but according to mom, it’s “challenging.”
So if you have someone in your life who is a thread nut and a puzzle fanatic, here’s the perfect marriage of the two. And what about you? Are you a puzzle fan? Or do you cringe at the Very Thought?!
I have lots of things I want to chat with you about, coming up this week and next – among them, a look at a couple beautiful embroidery kits from different sources (followed by a give-away for each of them); some real thread talk; some project updates; some hints for beginners that I’m attempting to finish, and on and on. It’ll be fun, so stay tuned!
Have a swell Tuesday!
