This is so cool. I was contacted by the folks at Connecting Threads, who read on my blog how much I like their thread and they want to give two of their thread sets to readers of my blog in the US or Canada. I think this is so great. I have no connection to Connecting Threads,

Yes, I have been on something of a crow-a-thon. Purchased crow, homemade crow, digital crow and now another crow.
Well, I knew both June and I would end up with crows. We both have a "thing" with them. But, of course each of us took a different approach.June
I have been lying low. I had oral surgery yesterday and while it was relatively minor, my mouth is achey and uncomfortable and it makes eating and talking difficult. I have a plastic stent covering the roof of my mouth, protecting the wound where tissue was cut out for a graft. ( I know—gross. Sorry I mentioned it...
Maybe you remember the birds I made a few years ago? I started making little stuffed birds, then I tried some more stylized birds using paper and/or fabric fused to a stiff backing
For the first time since we started this we missed our Sunday deadline. Or, more accurately, I missed the deadline. It was a brutal week, is all I can say. To give ourselves a little breathing room, we are skipping a week and will be back on Sunday, April 27 with our next challenge. Now, on with this week's the
I made a second "blue" quilt. I had an idea that I wanted to try, and as it turned out, it was a great opportunity to use my iPad drawing app to assist in its design. It was very fun to make despite the 24" x60" size/dimension that I am growing to hate. I made it as 6 separate components that were eventually joined to
Oh my! This was an interesting topic to consider! I am a worrier. I don't want to be. I try not to be, but it creeps in. Better, I thought, to assign those worries to an official "worrier." Here are our offerings for this week. Hope they are not too much of a downer!Terry
what the "purple" surprise was that Sofia was planning. Among several nice gifts from my family were these wonderful slippers, picked out especially for me by Sofia. They are pretty and feel great!
It is birthday week. Two of my dearest friends and I have birthdays this week. My birthday is tomorrow. Muriel's birthday was yesterday and Paula's was the today before. We are all getting pretty old. Not seventy, but perilously close. I realized this week that Muriel, who was my cross-the-street neighbor for 13 years
A busy week of travel for both June and me, but what do you know, we both managed to complete our weekly homework. Here is June's very charming interpretation of a New Yorker cover. June
Las Vegas. How can you take the place seriously? Ray made all the arrangements for our trip and told me we would be staying "off the Strip." We'd be out a ways, near where Roy and Jamie would be parking their trailer. "Good," I thought—quiet, basic, normal, un-Vegas-y. Not.
Our little spring break getaway. Good, in many ways. You know I have little love for Las Vegas, (http://andsewitgoes.blogspot.com/2011/07/and-then-there-was-las-vegas.html) but that is where we went, because that is what worked in a com
Well, June and I are both traveling but we managed to complete our homework on time. I am in a hotel room in Las Vegas and had all but despaired of getting the WIFI to work, but Ray had a brainstorm and figured out what we were missing. So here it is. June's drawing
What an interesting week it has been! I whined on my blog about my own lack of enthusiasm for writing, lately, and about the dearth of comments; which garnered so many comments I have scarcely been able to keep up with them! I asked if these digital drawing posts were boring and urged you to be honest. Some people claimed t
