wrapped up with flossy
Missy Kulik has mind reading abilities. That's the only way I can explain the fact that she emailed me about Flossy on the same day I was looking at Flossy and thinking that for ages I've wanted one. But then, I'm pretty sure all embroiderers would want one of these sweeties.
If you're not familiar, Flossy is a little wooden dachshund who hold embroidery floss for you. Technically, Flossy is also a pony, a unicorn, a llama, a fox, a sheep, a fawn, a giraffe, and a bunny, and you can see them all here.
When Flossy comes, her face is peeking through tissue. My excitement was already getting excited! I mean, just look at that cuteness! But she's also looking a little bare. A dachshund has that entire belly just waiting to be put to good use!
So I wrapped her up in my favorite brown floss. The color that I use all the time. It wouldn't really be practical for me to store all of my floss on bobbins like this, but keeping my most used color on her means she'll always be close at hand. And isn't it kind of Flossy to hold the end in her mouth? Eep! The Sweetest!
If you think you may need a Flossy or two (because it's difficult to decide between all of these cuties!), check out Sugar Cookie by Missy Kulik. While you're there, you'll want to see her jewelry, paper goods, buttons, zines, and more!
Thanks to Missy for the gift of this much loved bobbin!
Now, a sidebar. Today I mailed off a batch of projects for a book contribution, I have another batch to do, and I'm stitching along with the Summer Stitching Club. More regular projects will return to the blog soon...I've just been slowed down a bit here as I keep up with other things!
