The closing of...

I have recently received emails of 2 well known quilt stores is "public", Country Threads.  I love their quilts and blog. The other store is not publicizing their closure for another week.
I understand that Connie and Mary would like to retire....totally get that, but I will miss shopping online for their fun patterns and kits.  I do have a number of kits that I haven't finished from their I guess I should get busy!
One needs to go over to the Aurifil blog and check out my friend's BOM for the Aurifil Designer of the Month...Pay Wys. Love it!
On another note, I have become involved with Ravelry... an online knitting community.  I am making projects for "Plucktember".  What is Plucktember you ask?  It is an event that one knits objects with Plucky Knitter yarns and enter contests.  This is a great group of people and customer service is out of this world.  The yarn is very popular and only available during the Plucky Knitter updates...but it is to die for. I have a few projects planned....
It reminds me of planning for Thimbles Summer Stitch-In...what to make in an allotted amount of time although the f2f is not there which is okay because I do get more knitting

  1. I too am going to miss those two shops. I have several of their kits, like you need to get busy. Wool is keeping me busy.
