Why yes, I wax!

Someone asked recently on the Prim Stitchers Society Facebook page if stitchers used beeswax on their threads. I'm a newbie to beeswax . . . well to using it . . . I have a number of cute shapes that I have been given . . . guess I'm collecting them now. I didn't want to destroy the cute shapes, so I didn't use them. Janis Note (of Noteworthy Needle) makes so many cute shapes with funny names, it makes you want to collect them! Back in May (I know, it's been that long since I've checked in here.) Janis gave me Beeswax Bliss that she's making now so you don't have to destroy the cute shapes! It's just beeswax in a little container . . . perfect! I ask myself daily "why haven't I used this before?" I love it! I didn't think I needed it since I stitch exclusively with one strand, but it definitely helps keep the thread from tangling! 

Yes, I wax!
