Mystery giveaway teaser...

Untitled

Some of you may know exactly what this embroidery implement is (no, it's not a pen). Well, you're far more clued in than I was when the lovely folks at JR Crafter contacted me to review their Laying Tool.

What, all these years embroidering, and I'd never heard of it? It happens. :)

So, if you're like me, and have no clue what this lovely doohicky is, or how you might use it, I'm giving you advance notice so you can check out Mary Corbet's extremely helpful overview: What's a Laying Tool.

Because maybe, just maybe, we'll be doing a giveaway of this lovely tool in, oh about a week or so.... :)

  1. Ooo like the colour of it, I have one in sterling silver with two ends, though not as sharp as this one.

  4. I have an entire collection of laying tools. I love them and they really do come in handy if you're working with multiple strands of thread and you want to keep them from twisting together. The one pictured is beautiful! I don't have anything quite that pretty. :-)
