I had a bit of a giggle when I read Andrea's blog this afternoon and she mentioned that it was my fault that she made a purchase (previous post)...lol.... too funny.
Well maybe you just might have to do it again Andrea. This time it's a notion/tool.
I was reading my latest copy of Country Threads and got down to reading the ads (sad isn't it?). Anyway there was an ad/article about a new pencil on the market. Now the Aussie girls have probably already heard/seen this already. Sewline fabric pencil, a mechanical pencil with ceramic leads, can be washed off, or erased with the built-in eraser. Comes in a variety of colours. So the hunt began to find one of these, I just had to have it....a bit like a chocolate addict, I'm that way when it comes to things that make my embroidery an easier more pleasant process.
So this is where the service part of the post comes in. I found a quilt store here in the US that carried them, Florida to be exact. The only one I could find mind you, all the other stores were either Australia, New Zealand or England. So a quick phone call to one of the most friendly helpful ladies I think I've had the pleasure to encounter on the phone. It's already winging it's way to my mail box. So if you're like me and just have to have one then this is the store to visit.
