And since we are all so close I wanted to see if you heard about Tracy's new Project 99? Tracy is going to design 99 bottles of beer but she needs your help! Send Tracy a clear photo of your favorite bottle of beer and she will add it to the design. Tracy has 69 bottles so she is only 30 bottles away from her goal. Now let's all pitch in and go get a beer......just don't forget your camera!
Tracy is a 2010 SYHO Designer Encyclopedia participant. Ink Circles design will debut in August 2010. It is AMAZING! You will not want to miss it!

We will be sending out an e-mail to all Loose Thread Stitchers and SYHO members as well as posting on Facebook and Twitter. Please pass the word to your stitching friends that 99% of our followers were deleted and they will need to re-follow the blog.
In light of this situation, we will be moving the blog to another venue in the near future to prevent this from happening again but for now we don't want you to miss the latest and greatest in the stitching world. Thanks everyone!!!

Creativity shouldn't be something to fear, it should be something that excites you, feeds your soul and sparks the pride that comes from knowing ~ you did that! Does every project work out ~ no! That doesn't mean you can't try. You might surprise yourself......I know I did.
