Starting on Wednesday, one of my LQS's is going to be closed for painting. So for yesterday & today they are offering 20% off - the more they sell, the less they have to move...
So I bought some thread, a new thimble - the leather one that I use for hand quilting got is not working anymore - the needle kept getting stuck in the seam, and a pack of needles. You see I carry a tin pencil case for my English Paper Piecing to go project. All of my needles must have fallen out at one point or another - but then again that original package of needles dates back to my infancy in quilting... (When I thought was going to do it all by hand... O.K. you can stop laughing! As I am expecting a quilt to be on its way back from the long armer any day now.)
All in all I bought inexpensive items on sale, so it is not bad.
So I did not get to try out the skin saver yet... Since it is supposed to get to 96 degrees Farenheit with TOOO much humidity, I will be staying in my office and doing EPP during lunch. - But I don't prick my finger in the same manner when doing EPP as when hand quilting... (When I prick my self doing EPP - it is a complete accident, instead of feeling for the needle to know that I made it through the 3 layers of the quilt when quilting.)
