Scrabble tiles!

I'm working on a project for the new book. This is a Christmas book that will be out in a year or so. I can't share many details (don't want to ruin any surprises) but I thought you would enjoy this tidbit.

I needed to put words on this project. Didn't want to applique them, didn't want to paint them, didn't want to use photo transfer. And then I remembered the antique Scrabble tiles I've been saving! I used a tiny little drill bit (1/16") and my husband's drill press to drill the holes. I'm sewing them down with red perle cotton. Cute!

So my advice is – if you see Scrabble tiles at a garage sale or flea market, buy them!
