Christmas Thread

What a gorgeous day after a heavy frost the sun is shinning its cold and the sky a lovely shade of blue.

Today I thought I would show you a lovely new thread I brought recently, I wanted some new threads and thought I would try the Lizbeth thread. This thread is sold in America so I ordered a batch of different colours from America, but the postage was more than the price of the order, they also questioned my address and I asked if the order could be sent by a cheaper means, they said NO, but gave me a web address in this country. Seeing I had googled this thread a couple of times and not found a UK supplier, I was a little bit confused. Anyway I tried the address I was given and found a great site called Roseground. Ordering my original order to them their postage was only £3.20, a big difference from $32. This thread is called Christmas Delight in No 20.
This is Katie Johnson's 3d-Dimensional Angel which I put on my blog last month. This is the angel which I adapted to stand up rather than the orginal pattern which had the shirt glued onto the body.

My favorite Butterfly from Tatting Patterns by Mary Konior

Sunbonnet Sue Motif I mixed the Christmas thread with white, again I put this motif on my blog in August. They are so different in this thread, it does not matter how many you do in this thread they will all be different.

I brought about 7 balls all different to try so watch out over the next few months for some new designs and colours. I have not tried knitting with the thread yet, it tats beautifully so it should knit well.
Hope you have liked my new thread and enjoyed reading my blog today, and hope to see you again in blog land. In the meantime take care
