New Threads

Hi, So far today has been dry although the weather said we will get rain later. Its been a lovely spring so far and very dry, although Vernon has not started on the garden some of the plants really do need some rain. I am one who would like the rain at night and sun during the day. Vernon did my craft table again on Saturday, it was a quite day, even though Mothers Day is just around the corner. He only did it on one condition I sit and do nothing but answer technical questions, he does not do technical. Today I am showing you my new threads, I brought a load before Christmas and I am still wading though them, so there are more to come. Only tatters get excited about threads, believe me threads and colours play a large part of a tatters world. Whenever I get a new colour I make a butterfly, it shows me how the colour is going to work up, this pattern is from Mary Konior, I have made so many over the years I know the pattern off by heart now. This is cotton candy Lizbeth thread no 20.
This is Tropical Punch again Lizbeth no 20, I like this colour with the yellow, orange, and two shades of pink, very zingy colours. I made a pair of my Cymbidium Earrings but I used a small bead, also a small basket.

This is thread I was sent by Margaretha (Typstatting) in Australia, again I made the butterfly and also a another pair of Cymbidium Earrings this time I used one of my new pale pink pearls that I got last week, I think the pearl looks lovely and I will be using them instead of the small beads in future.
The next picture is another thread she sent its lovely and I am really pleased with it, the colours of yellow, green and white although the picture looks more blue than green, but it is green.

I have found out that they are Turkish threads, so when I buy some more threads I will be adding this to my order.

I still have a few more threads that I have not got around to so watch out there will be more to come.

I hope you are keeping well and enjoying the lovely weather we have at the moment while it lasts. In the meantime until we meet again in blog land, take care.

  6. I LOVE this beautiful butterfly! What a fun way to test different threads! I especially like the elongated picots. I'm hoping to find a copy of Mary's book 'out there' at a reasonable price!

    Also, I think that's a SWEET basket!!! It's so pretty in Tropical Punch. Is that your own design?

    As I side note, I'm amused that you're counting down to your birthday! I'm always hoping people forget when mine is! I've never gotten over turning 60 several years ago. Glad to be here, but shocked that I graduated from high school 50 years ago this year!!!

  7. Love these. I need to look up with MK pattern.

    The basket is beautiful. What is the pattern?
