Coins Patriotic

I just LOVE my local needlework store (LNS) Fanci-Mats and More in downtown Littleton, Colorado!! I called Friday to see if they had the thread I needed to finish the "Coins Patriotic" I posted about previously under Olympic Stitching. She did not have any, but was waiting on a back order. I then mentioned my disappointment since I wanted to finish before the end of the Olympics and only had maybe 4 inches left to do but the kit did not have enough. She asked it I had gotten the kit at her shop and when I said yes, she looked to see if she had any "shop thread" in that color. Well, she did!!!! So I went over after work and got enough (and a bit more) to get it finished!!! All for no charge. I think shop thread is stuff left over from when they stitch models and it sure worked out great for me! While there I did pick up a cute pair of scissors :) too!!

That is a darling stitch!! And, you are so so blessed to not only have a LNS, but to have one as caring as that one!! I need to go now on line and check the shop out~~~ Great job, Faye

You are so lucky to have a LNS. I guess I took them for granted before I moved to KY. I just assumed they were everywhere (as they should be). I have even considered opening one up myself! I can't be the only one around here wanting one.

I love this piece. So patriotic and you know that's right up my alley!
Beautiful stitching!

That was sweet of the owner! Isn't it nice when you have a relationship with the owner of an LNS - so much better than just trying to do everything online, in my opinion.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Great service! And a nice finish.

I wish I had a LNS close to me in those spare of the moment times when I need something quickly. You are so lucky! Your Coins Patriotic looks great too.
Happy Stitching
