Thread! I love it! Black Friday came around and Connecting Threads was having an extra special sale. So I ordered some thread. I ordered more than this but I LOVE this color collection. It makes me want to do some sort of thread painting or a whole cloth quilt using all of these colors.
When I was at Art Quilt Tahoe, I was talking to my teacher about my embroidery and she asked if I’d ever tried Cottage Garden Threads. Nope, never heard of them. Well, that’s because they are an Australian company. But once I saw all the gorgeous multicolor threads they had I was on a hunt. I found a woman on Etsy who sold their threads, and she was willing to make a custom order for me. I splurged and bought 22 different colorways all in perle cotton size 8 (this is just a sample of them.) They weren’t cheap, but the quality is evident. And now I want to make something just using all these gorgeous threads.
In between Christmas preparations and working in the garden I am stitching away. I’ll share some of what I’ve been doing in the next few posts.
