Mr. Lucky and I with Goofy at Disney Epcot. Do we look like tourists or what!
Great little "chef's band" These guys drumed on all kinds of kitchen utensils and were great fun to watch.
Fold in half and pass both ends through the eye of the needle.
Take your first stitch but don't pull all the way. Come back to the underside and slip your needle through the loop.
When you tug to secure, you have a neat little starting point with no knot. This trick is wonderful for your cross stitch projects too; no more having to secure the ends in your first few stitches.
OK, all. Will talk at you later, I've still got unpacking to do! Rumi
