WFMW: The Bees Have It



So I'm still making yo-yos and I cannot WAIT to show you what I'm making, but as the project is still rather amorphous wait I shall.

I was making yo-yos and dealing with knotty thread - UGH! So I went out and bought this:

Beeswax Helper

Quilter's Beeswax.

I was so desperate that I even paid full price at Jo-Ann's - which just isn't done (it was not pricey - it's the principle).

It is all natural beeswax and if I was in the neighborhood I'd have picked up a small bit at the healthfood store, but - you know - desperate!

The Bees have done their duty (thanks Bees) and now my thread glides through the fabric like a dream.

I'll keep you posted!

My daughter and I learned about beeswax to keep thread from knotting from one of the books we got at www.hopechestlegacy.com. We used it hard when making these sewing kits - http://hickoryspringsfarm.blogspot.com/2008/06/sewing-kit-complete.html

I can't beleive how much it helps! Our local farmers market sells it (but not in that nifty case).


Can't wait to see the yo yo's!
