Kreinik Metallic Thread Very Fine # 4 Red and We Say Goodbye To A Great Novelist Tom Clancy

Kreinik Metallic Thread
Very Fine #4 Red
Posted by Drew Zeitlin:

Hello everybody. We found out today that the great novelist Tom Clancy passed away. Tom Clancy was only 66. He was best known for his great books that were technically detailed in espionage and military science story lines. He was good. How good you ask? Seventeen of his novels were best-sellers, with over 100 million copies in print. Clancy's first book was written in 1985 and titled The Hunt for Red October. The Novels The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, and The Sum of All Fears were turned into major movies starring the likes of Alec Baldwin, some guy named Harrison Ford, and Ben Affleck. What is not well known but he should be remembered as well for, he was a part owner of the Baltimore Orioles. That is one good baseball team. 

So the question that must be asked is how to pay tribute to this great novelist and part owner of the great baseball team, the Baltimore Orioles? With an important question like that, we thought it best to get input from the digital vaults at abullrun. The output we got from the digital vaults at abullrun was Kreinik Metallic Thread Very Fine #4 Red. It is October and Tom Clancy's first book was The Hunt For Red October. It was also the first movie based on one of his books. The movie was a big hit in 1990. It starred Alec Baldwin as Jack Ryan and Sean Connery as Captain Marco Ramius. The movie was one of the top grossing films for 1990 with a gross of over $200 million world wide. abullrun helped with that total by watching this great movie the first week it came out. Most likely you too have seen this movie either at the box office, DVD, or on TV.

So without any hesitation the featured item of the day is the Kreinik Metallic Thread Very Fine #4 Red. These vibrant shades will fill you with passion and keep you smiling. We are not sure that it will allow you to steal a Russian submarine and defect to the United States while being chased by the Russian navy. We are for sure that it will add a sparkle and fun to your project. Let's face it Kreinik threads always makes your projects a little more special.

This Red Color Stash includes the following 20 colors on 5M reels: 003, 003HL, 003V, 007, 007HL, 024, 024HL, 031, 042, 055F, 061, 080HL, 092, 095, 153V, 192, 308, 326, 421, 3237. As with all items at www.abullrun.com these threads are new and has never been opened and are shipped in air bubble mailer.

Hello everybody. It has been a fun and interesting summer as all summers are. As the summer winds down it easy for one to reflect on what happened this summer. And what did happen this summer? One thing comes to mind, that the future King of England became a dad. Maybe you heard about it, it was in all the papers and the internet. Big News right?

Cross Stitch Design Galloping Horses and Happy 110 Birthday Lou Gehrig

Cross Stitch Design Galloping Horses
Posted by Drew Zeitlin:

Hello everybody. On June 19, 1903 Lou Gehrig was born. If you are not familier with Lou Gehrig he played baseball for the New York Yankees between 1923 to 1939. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1939. He was the leading vote-getter on Major League Baseball All Century Team. Gehrig shares the record for most grand slams in a career. In his playing day he was best known for playing in 2,130 consecutive baseball games. That record stood till Cal Ripken Jr. of the Baltimore Orioles surpassed it in 1995. As great as player that Lou Gehrig was, he is best remembered for the disease that killed him. Lou Gehrig died in 1941 from ALS amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, which is now known as Lou Gehrig's disease. He should be most remembered by the inspirational speech he gave on July 4, 1939. Knowing that he was afflicted with this disease that would kill him in less than 3 years he stood in front of 61,808 fans at Yankee Stadium and said, 

"Fans, for the past two weeks you have been reading about the bad break I got. Yet today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth. I have been in ballparks for seventeen years and have never received anything but kindness and encouragement from you fans.
Look at these grand men. Which of you wouldn’t consider it the highlight of his career just to associate with them for even one day? Sure, I’m lucky. Who wouldn’t consider it an honor to have known Jacob Ruppert? Also, the builder of baseball’s greatest empire, Ed Barrow? To have spent six years with that wonderful little fellow, Miller Huggins? Then to have spent the next nine years with that outstanding leader, that smart student of psychology, the best manager in baseball today, Joe McCarthy? Sure, I'm lucky.
When the New York Giants, a team you would give your right arm to beat, and vice versa, sends you a gift — that’s something. When everybody down to the groundskeepers and those boys in white coats remember you with trophies — that’s something. When you have a wonderful mother-in-law who takes sides with you in squabbles with her own daughter — that's something. When you have a father and a mother who work all their lives so that you can have an education and build your body — it's a blessing. When you have a wife who has been a tower of strength and shown more courage than you dreamed existed — that's the finest I know.
So I close in saying that I might have been given a bad break, but I've got an awful lot to live for. Thank you."

Wow! What a speech. So we were thinking what would be a great way to honor Lou Gehrig on his 110th birthday. So of course we turn to the great answering machine the digital vaults at abullrun for that answer. The answer is the Cross Stitch Design Galloping Horses. After we ponder that answer for a little bit we would concur  You see Lou Gehrig's nickname was the Iron Horse. Mostly because of the consecutive games that he played but also because he played the game like a galloping horse, with strength and beauty,

So on the 110th birthday of Lou Gehrig, we think the item of the day should be the Cross Stitch Design Galloping Horses.  This is a great design for your home, it gives you the sights and sounds of untamed horses galloping across this wild landscape. You get this picturesque scene in your home and you don't get the mess this scene would cause. The finished size of this untamed landscape is 18" x 10" (46 x 25 cm).

The Cross Stitch Design Galloping Horses is from Dimensions and designed by Chris Cummings. The kit includes cotton thread, blending filament, 16 count dove grey Aida, color-coded thread sorter, needle, easy instructions, and easy to read multicolor chart, with a fabric size 22" x 14" (56 x 36cm).  As with all kits at www.abullrun.com this kit is new and has never been opened and is shipped in air bubble mailer.

Cross Stitch Design Firefighter and Thank You For Your Help On The Black Forest Fire

Cross Stitch Design Firefighter
Posted by Drew Zeitlin:

Hello everybody. For the second time in two years the city of Colorado Springs has had an incredible fire that has cause havoc for the community. If you are new to the blog or abullrun, just to let you know we are located in Colorado Springs. Last year the Waldo Canyon fire started on June 23, 2012 and covered 18,247 acres or 29 square miles. The fire caused the evacuation of over 32,000 residents and approximately 346 homes were destroyed. This year the Black Forrest fire started on June 11, 2013, as of this writing it is 85 percent contained but there are still 937 homes and 9,830 acres under mandatory evacuation orders. At the high point of the fire almost 40,000 people were evacuated. The Black Forest fire has burned 14,280 acres and it was estimated the fire reached  2,500 degrees. Wow! That is hot. The fire consumed 502 homes and killed 2 people. In both fires the community of Colorado Springs saw the heroic act of the Firefighters. Boy do they work hard and do they do an unbelievable job. Without their courageous ways who knows what Colorado Springs would look like today. We just want to say thanks.

So the question on the table is how best to honor these heroic Firefighters who have saved Colorado Springs not once but twice in two years. For that most important answer we turn to the digital vaults at abullrun. It is very important to get this answer right. As always the digital vaults at abullurn came back with the right answer. The right answer is the Cross Stitch Design Firefighter. It is the perfect cross stitch design for these awesome individuals.

The best way to honor heroic Firefighters is with the Cross Stitch Design Firefighter. In the design is reads "LOYAL" which is great but it easily could also have said brave and or courageous, because they sure are. This cross stitch design would make a great gift to honor that special firefighter. By the way the digital vaults at abullrun have informed us that there is a very limited supply of this cross stitch kit. The finished size of this very special cross stich design is 7.5" x 8" (19 x20 cm).

The Cross Stitch Design Firefighter is from Janlynn and designed by Sandy Garbrandt.

Cross Stitch Design Ahoy! Bears and Happy Memorial Day to Everyone

Cross Stitch Design Ahoy! Bears
Posted by Drew Zeitlin:

Hello everybody. We want to wish everybody a very Happy Memorial Day. In the past couple of blog post we have discussed what are some of the fun and different meanings that Memorial Day has to offer. On Saturday's blog post we talked about how Memorial Day was the unofficial start of summer and how great going to the beach and collecting sea shells was. On Sunday's blog post we talked about how the Indianapolis 500 is always raced on the Memorial Day weekend. Today's blog post we are going to talk about the real meaning behind Memorial Day. Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday which occurs every year on the final Monday of May. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. We want to thank all those men and women who made that ultimate sacrifice for their country. 

So the question we must answer is how best to honor those heros? For that answer we turn to the one place we are sure to get that all import answer and that is the digital vaults at abullrun. Their reply to us was the Cross Stitch Design Ahoy! Bears. We think that is an excellent choice. Although the design only represents one branch of the armed forces its symbolism captures the spirit of all the armed forces. It place that makes us feel safe inside.

On this Memorial Day 2013 it is with great honor that the featured item of the day is the Cross Stitch Design Ahoy! Bears. You can just feel that warm and fuzzy feeling over taking you while taking just one glance at this cross stitch design. How can you not have this design in your home? Not only would this cross stitch design be suitable for a child's room or den but it would be perfect for it. The finished size for this feel good cross stitch project is 7" x 5" (18 x 13 cm).

Cross Stitch Design Beach Waltz and The Indianapolis 500

Cross Stitch Design Beach Waltz
Posted by Drew Zeitlin:

Hello everybody. In yesterday's blog post we talked a lot about Memorial Day. We talked how it Memorial Day ment different things to different people. Yesterday we discussed that Memorial Day was the unofficial start to summer and collecting sea shells on the beach was a great thing to do in the summer. Another event that Memorial Day brings is the running of the Indianapolis 500. The Indy 500 is called The Greatest Spectacle In Racing and is considered one of the three most prestigious motor sports events in the World. Over 400,000 people trek to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to watch this event every year. In 1911 the first winner of the Indy 500 race was Ray Harroun.  A.J. Foyt, Al Unser, and Rick Mears have won the most Indy 500's at four a piece.  Today's winner was Tony Kanaan.

The question that has been racing around our minds is how do you tie summer, the beach, and automobile racing together? We believe this to be a very hard question and a question that might stump the all-time answering machine the digital vaults at abullrun. How are they going to be able to tie summer, the beach, and automobile racing together? The digital vaults at abullrun, just laughed off the question as to easy. Their answer was the Cross Stitch Design Beach Waltz. We have to admit they did have a great answer. They got summer, the beach, and automobile racing together and for good measure they threw in dancing, refreshments, and an old Victrola.

On the day that Tony Kanann wins the 97th running of the Indianapolis 500 the featured item of the day is the Cross Stitch Design Beach Waltz. As we mention this cross stitch design seems to have everything. This nostalgic look at song and dance is a must for your home.

Cross Stitch Design Shell Collection and Enjoy Summer

Cross Stitch Design Shell Collection
Posted by Drew Zeitlin:

Hello everybody. Since we have arrived at the last weekend in May, it must mean we have arrived at Memorial Day. Memorial Day means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. There are picnics and barbecues (we like it when there is a lot of food around). A lot of people will enjoy a three day weekend and one less day at work. Some people will travel and see loved ones.  One thing Memorial Day does represent, is that it is the unofficial start to Summer. Ahh summer a time for fun, sun, and sun burn? Well, there is probably more fun and sun than sun burn. But there is just something special about summer. What are your plans for summer? Are you ready for fun and sun and we will forget about the sun burn?

With summer now upon us the question we had was, what is some of the cool stuff you can do for summer? To get the best answer to that question we turned our attention to the guru of answers the digital vaults at abullrun. The digital vaults at abullrun informed us that there are many great things to do in the summer time and how could they choose one. With some prodding from us, and restating the question as can you name one cool stuff to do this summer, the digital vaults gave us an answer. The answer was the Cross Stitch Design Shell Collection. We like that selection, because  it means, we are going to the beach. We like the beach a lot but living in Colorado Springs, we are land locked and don't get to enjoy the beach that much. The beach is a great place to be in the summer time. 

With the unofficial start of summer upon us, could there be a better featured item of the day than the Cross Stitch Design Shell Collection? There is a lot to do at the beach. There is swimming, surfing, tanning, and sand castles to name just a few. One cool thing to do on the beach is collect some shells. Shells are cool to collect because you don't get to wet, to dirty, or to much sun burn. You also get to bring the shells home and decorate your home. Sea shells are great for decorations and they are also great for memories. How can you go wrong with this shell collection cross stitch design? The finished size of this summer fun design is 11" x 11" (28 x 28 cm).

The Cross Stitch Design Shell Collection is from Dimensions. The kit includes cotton thread, 14 count ivory cotton Aida, thread sorter, needle, and easy instructions with a fabric size of 15" x 15" (38 x 38cm).  As with all kits at www.abullrun.com this kit is new and has never been opened and is shipped in air bubble mailer.

Cross Stitch Design Hope Owl and Congratulation on Graduation

Cross Stitch Design Hope Owl
Posted by Drew Zeitlin:

Hello everybody. Well, it is that time of year again. It is that time when certain 17, 18 and 19 year olds didn't think would ever get here. It is that time when some of their parents would agree and other parents can't believe it got here so quick. It is time for graduation. It is time for pop and circumstance. For the graduate it is time for relief, celebration, maybe college, and or maybe a job. For the parents it is time also for relief, reflection, celebration, maybe helping with college tuition, and or maybe collecting some rent. Mostly it is a time for hope. We want to offer congratulation to the Class of 2013 and to their parents for a job well done. Good luck.

So the question that needs to be studied and hopefully answered thoughtfully and provocatively is what would be a great gift for a new graduate? The best source for thoughtfully and provocatively answers is the digital vaults at abullrun. We posed this question to them and the reply was of course the Cross Stitch Design Hope Owl. Of course it is a time for optimism and hope. Of course it is always time for optimism and hope, but much more at this time.

At this time of graduation what could be a better featured item of the day than the Cross Stitch Design Hope Owl. When you think of school, you think of learning and becoming wise. Do you know anything wiser than a wise old owl? What could be better than a wise old owl delivering hope? You better give a hoot because that is a perfect combination, wisdom and hope. The finished size of this hopeful cross stitch design is 10" x 10" (25.4 x 25.4 cm).

The Cross Stitch Design Hope Owl is from Design Works and designed by Karla Dornacher. The kit includes 14 count Aida cloth, embroidery floss, needle, and instructions.  As with all kits at www.abullrun.com this kit is new and has never been opened and is shipped in air bubble mailer.

Cross Stitch Design Classic Santa Stocking and Happy Birthday Frank Capra

Cross Stitch Design Classic
Santa Stocking
Posted by Drew Zeitlin:

Hello everybody. Today is a very special day. A very special person was born on this day. That special day was May 18, 1897 and that special person was the famed film director Frank Capra. Mr. Capra would be 116 years old today. In 1934 Frank Capra directed the hit movie It Happened One Night, which became the first film to win all five top Oscars including Best Picture. He also directed such fan favorites as Mr. Deeds Goes To Town, Lost Horizon, You Can't Take It With You, Meet John Doe, and one of our all time favorites Mr. Smith Goes To Washington. If Capra would have stopped there he would have been in the film directors Hall of Fame. Obviously he did not stop. During World War ll, he directed or co-directed 7 documentaries war information films called Why We Fight which won him an Academy Award in 1942 for Documentary Feature. Frank Capra is probably best known for his 1946 movie called It's A Wonderful Life starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed. It's A Wonderful Life is considered one of the best Christmas movies of all time and is also considered one of the most inspirational movies of all time. There is no doubt Frank Capra is one of the greatest movie directors of all time. 

So that question that bothers everybody from time to time is what to get that someone who is hard to buy for? What Birthday gift can you get for someone who is 116 and produced such great movies? We were thinking a tie, but it just did not seem appropriate for this occasion and ties seem to be a much better present for Father's Day. Finally we asked the great answering device the digital vaults at abullrun if they could help us on this question. As they always do, they did help and the answer was the Cross Stitch Design Classic Santa Stocking. Well, of course the man who produced one of the greatest Christmas movies all time should be honored with the man who helps brings toys to kids on Christmas. You know that jolly old fellow with the white beard, we think they call him Santa.

On this special day of May 18, what a better item to feature for a special man on his special day than the Cross Stitch Design Classic Santa Stocking. You know what is so great about this Christmas stocking? Let me tell you, it has everything that is special with Christmas. There is of course Santa, how about that Christmas tree, a nice fire going in the fireplace with stockings hanging on the mantle, and something we all like and that is toys, and look at those toys. The digital vaults at abullrun wanted us to remind you that these cross stitch stocking projects can take up to 6 months to complete so you might want to start them now so that this special Christmas stocking can be hanging above your fire place this Christmas. The finished size of this classic Christmas stocking is 18" (45.7 cm).

The Cross Stitch Design Classic Santa Stocking is from Bucilla. The kit includes 28 count mushroom evenweave (100% cotton), cotton embroidery floss, floss separator, red felt, needle, tri-lingual instructions, and a chart.  As with all kits at www.abullrun.com this kit is new and has never been opened and is shipped in air bubble mailer.
