A fly by post to show you my Sulky Petites 12wt cotton thread choices for my next Forest Park Friend in the hoop ;-). Her name is Ruth. She is a design by Kathy Schmitz available in her webstore in printed and PDF version, and in her Etsy shop in PDF version. I get mine from her Etsy shop (link at the end of this post). Hoping that Ruth will soon be completed and join Lucy the gardening bear, which was blogged about here.
Needleminder (needle magnet) from Cynthia Crane's Etsy shop.
Sulky Petites 12wt from Uncommon Thread (they are also available in other sites, this site is where I got mine).
This below is a screenshot of Forest Park Friend: Ruth, PDF pattern available in Kathy's Etsy store.
