you're sew fine chalenge | the twinery

I'm just an old-school Prepster and love anything monogrammed, don't you?  Have you ever thought about sewing with The Twinery baker's twine? I've done it many times and it works beautifully. If you're wondering about how to get the twine through the eye of your needle, you could always try out this little threading trick of mine.

Although the challenge ends this evening, for the last ten days our designers have presented their fun and creative projects and we invite you to play along for a chance to win.
