Saint Patrick's Day is a fine day for a wedding

Andy and I celebrate 31 years of marriage!

A bit ahead of the current fashion, our friend, Amelia Griffin, a printmaking student, made letter press invitations with woodcuts of Iowa wildflowers. She made wildflower woodcuts for each of our children's birth announcements too.

end of the line

I think these are my last two spools of Mölnlycke. I love this thread. It has a mixture of being smooth with just enough "tooth" to it to make it a pleasure to hand sew with. Mölnlycke and Corticelli are both lost to us now, and I like Mettler and Gutterman and Aurifil and the Coats and Clark newer threads. But, I will miss my Mölnlycke!
