Unpacking the final four threads and stitches from the 2018 Threadventure!

Well, hello there lovely…

It’s great to see you again! I don’t know what the weather is like in your neck of the woods, but it’s pretty doggone hot here in Alabama. In fact, it’s hard to believe that Saturday marks the first day of fall! Maybe today’s stitches and threads will put a nip in the air. Whaddya’ say we dive in and unpack the last four threads (and stitches!) from the 2018 Threadventure: Parisian stripe, double Parisian, snowflake darning pattern, and couching?

Oh – and if, perchance, you’re new to the Serendipity family and don’t know what I’m talking about, click here to get the low-down on the 2018 Threadventure.
