Keep on Rockin in the Free World

So, for those of you who don't know, W works for an independent record store in our town called CD World. It is a great record store, and he loves it. But admittedly, times are hard for record stores these days. There are so many different ways to get music today that the record store industry is struggling at times. Now, they are not all closing like the media would have you believe, but they are having to change and adapt and rethink the way they do business.

On that note, this Saturday is National Record Store Day. Lots of record stores across the nation are participating with live performances, events, and sales. Check out the website to see if your local record store is participating. Even it it isn't, go out to your favorite record store this Saturday and support music and local business. You'll be glad you did.

So, in honor of Record Store Day I'm going to share with you a rock n' roll onesie embroidery I did awhile back with Sublime Stitching patterns. I tried using a metallic thread for the symbols, but it was REALLY difficult to work with. I don't think I'll ever try to use it again. I did notice that Jenny sells some metallic thread on Sublime Stitching that is supposed to be better. I'll have to try that out next time I do this pattern.

I've posted more on Flickr as well. Rock on!

I've always found metallic thread hell to stitch with as well. Let me know if the Sublime stuff is any better :)
