there’s this really amazing… needlepoint? handwork? sewing? i don’t know- we’ll call it needlework store (the name is threadneedle street), in the area. i love it. she has EVERYTHING. she’s beyond knowledgeable, and she knows, by name or number (!!!), if she has a thread color in stock or not. multiple lines! intense. the unfortunate bit, is that this shop is in ISSAQUAH. that’s right. bridges. water. tolls. miles and miles away. almost an hour from my house. but let’s be honest. it’s probably for the best. if it were down the street, i’d be bugging that poor lady on the daily. i’d be spending every dime i have on her amazing linen. and you’d think- oh, well, just get on her website, and order that stuff up! no. just… no. can’t be done. i invite you to recall what websites looked like in 1995. you remember. all. that. time. ago. you are literally better off calling her, and asking. no joke.
but all this aside- i went to this delicious store this week, and bought everything you need to complete my pattern (BYOH) (that’s HOOP in case you were stumped), and decided to do a little giveaway. Feel free to leave a comment here, or better– go to instagram, follow me, tag a galentine (HAD TO), and you’ll be entered into the drawing. you will receive: a free copy of my sugar valentine pattern, a yummy piece of pearl grey, 32 count linen, all the floss colors needed, a thread organizer (that also cuts, and holds needles!!!), and… not pictured, an adorable pair of rainbow metal crane snips. I KNOW! entering ends tuesday the 6th at midnight, i will choose the lucky winner on the morning of wednesday the 7th. FUN!
feel like you’d rather just buy the pattern and get started now? buy it here!
