Surprise....


It was in my mail box today! A gift and it is threads….I’m so excited.
Maureen from Australia has sent me a lovely card and threads. The variegated hand dyed thread is very pretty, isn’t it?

                             
THANK YOU SO MUCH MAUREEN.
I’ve never used hand dyed threads. I have a project in mind to use this variegated thread. I’d appreciate your suggestions….
Did you see the white thread? I’m going to try something with that thread and will show y’all soon.
Happy stitching
Anita.

Thank you Vaheeda,Suz,Deanna,Royce.
@Deanna- This hand dyed thread is stranded cotton.I've got to think about a design which'll require only 1 skein.Tatting with hand dyed threads sounds exciting.You've added one more in my wishlist!
@Suz -Both are embroidery threads Suz.I'll show you what I'm planning soon..
