When I’m traveling I like to pick up at least one kit at the LNS.  For my road trip through Oregon….

Unique Lee Yours

Unique Lee Yours in Grants Pass Oregon.  There’s no sales tax if ordering from Oregon.  She has an eBay shop, a facebook page and a website.

I picked up Bluebirds in the Backyard by Nancy’s needle.  This is a canvas project.  I rarely do these but during my cleaning sessions I found canvas… old and weather torn but still useful.  This design covers the whole canvas. I also got some stretcher bars for another project, some Gloriana samples for my Gloriana thread card, a couple of Slik and Colors samples, RG gold card PH01 for the Skyros Island Schooner, and a Corjac Tack Kit.

Acorns and Threads

Acorns and Threads in Portland, Oregon.  This LNS had some wonderful finishing ideas for projects. Since I’m learning to quilt, I took pictures of the ideas.  I also bought a Needlepoint Now Magazine and  Jim Shore design called Sunshine.

This is the original design from Jim Shore


I’ll upload the picture of the quilted item when I get my phone back.  I left it at my daughters house last night.

Threads charted are DMC… which I think I’ll use.  I did get beads from the shop.

While I was there I also saw other designs I would like to order later.  They are the Steampunk designs by Sam Sarah.  Sea Serpent, Sparrow and Bumble Bee.  I’m not too sure about the Bumble Bee though… but definitely the Sparrow and Sea Serpent.
