I finished the red pouch for the winner of the Grow Your Blog, Val @ Val's Quilting Studio . I hope she likes it! She has a great blog and could use some new visitors! Maybe some of you could drop by and take a look. It was the Grow Your Blog Giveaway. As I have done before, I used Aurifil 12 wt. thread in my sewing machine to accent! Now I have this pink pouch I finished and have to find a use for it! Do you use pouches to keep your things in around the house or a ziplock bag? I have been going around looking for the ziplocks and replacing them with my pouches! Looks so much neater. Speaking of Aurifil threads I moved all mine into this great Nuts and Bolts holder from the hardware store to have it all together right by my sewing machine. Looking at the hardware store for storage options can be very rewarding. The craft stores have similar products at twice the cost. You would be amazed at what you can find. Finished my block for the Aurifil Designer of the Month

Giveaway Closed! Stitch on Prints Welcome to "In The Boon Docks"! 2014 is going to be the year of Experiments. "Stitch on Prints" is taking a turn from hand stitching only to include experiments in the use of different weights of threads along with varying stitch sizes on your personel sewing machine to create unique looks! The Giveaway of (2) 12 wt spools of thread is provided by Aurifil . Please visit our sponsor sales links provided below when you need a new spool. The other day when I was looking at the Aurifl site and I found this tidbit Aurifil 12 wt Embellishment and Sashiko dreams ! I began to experiment with the machine settings, needles, threads and loved the texture of the heavier thread stitched with a sewing machine. Here is what I did to create this look! I used these setting on my new Juki Exceed Home Decor HZL-F300 that my wonderful hubby bought me for Christmas. What a killer deal that was and better left for another time. Changed the needle
