First off I'd like to say thank you again to my Brad for thinking of me in this gift. His sister recently passed away and he was given a box of her belongings. From this my parents gave me a porcelain doll and a jar (vase?) of these wooden spools of thread from the box... which I LOVE. I just did a photo session with them for fun and for the current (FIBER) issue of Portals (which we're putting it to bed this weekend. Yay!) I have to say that it is honestly my favorite issue so far. I am so excited about it and really think you're going to love it! Don't forget to pre-order your copy here.
