Floss Tube Stitch Roadie No 27 "Sew With Me"

  1. For your short thread ends - a #14 steel crochet hook can usually slip under stitches and grab your thread to pull through. Or loop a scrap thread (sewing thread is fine) on a needle, and use the loop to pull your thread under to end. Or if you want a fancy tool, look for a dololly (not sure if that's spelled right)

    1. I forgot another method - use one of those "easy thread" needles - once you get the needle under stitches, you can slip your thread into the needle. I think they come in both blunt and sharp points.

  2. I do the same thing with my last bits of thread! Whatever works!

  3. Anna, I have tried several times to find snippity mats on Etsy, nor can I find Catty Cross stitch, or Marion the Librarian. I notice another viewer reported the same problem. Cheryl

  6. I'll take your 32 degrees. We've been at 12 degrees the last few days with the nor'ester howling and snow drifting, here in Ferndale, WA about 1 1/2 hours north of Seattle. It's a deep freeze. Schools closed today and tomorrow. It's doubtful I will get out tomorrow to go to work so a quilty snow day is on the horizon. Woot Woot!

  9. A little off topic, do you know the name and designer of your mono colored tree scape? I think it's just beautiful. I've moved from quilting to now being addicted to cross stitch and making project bags (great stash buster). Thanks for blazing the trail. An avid fan of Quilt Roadies and now your floss tube.

  11. I love Rudolph's nose. But another suggestion is to use a bead on his nose

  12. If you don't have to frog Santa - you could always make him into a Christmas ornament!
