I'll be honest, I'm not one for trying new tools out; I just make do with what I have usually. But I made a point to buy Dritz Thermal Thimbles because I often burn my fingers while ironing, and I thought I might as well give these a shot. This past weekend I was working on a little project and the piecing was very small, so I was so excited to try these thimbles out! And oh my goodness, they are awesome! My fingers were practically touching the iron and I didn't get burnt at all!

Look at this darling little bottle-cap pincushion from Super-cute Pincusions. It is SO cute and very fun to make! I am a lover of wools so this project is made of wool. I love to embellish and was attracted to the embroidery stitches that adorned the minute pincushion. It has quite a history too!
When most people hear Black Friday, they picture long lists, road maps, camping in parking lots...oy. Connecting Threads' Black Friday Sale is much more our style. Who doesn't love the convenience of shopping from home (or work...it's okay, we won't tell), sipping some warm coffee, and snapping up great deals, without having to deal with the stress of the normal Black Friday mayhem?
It's hard to believe that the holiday season is already upon us, and 2012 is coming to a close. What an incredible year this has been! The team here at Connecting Threads would like to take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you a wonderful Thanksgiving. From our humble beginnings so many, many years ago, no one could have imagined that we would end up where we are today. For that, we are endlessly grateful. Your continued loyalty and support keeps us humble, and it is a true honor to serve you.
This year, as you gather around the table in celebration of all that there is to be thankful for, please know that we are thankful for you. Happy Holidays!
-Your friends at Connecting Threads
