Look what the mailman brought


I ordered 27 premium, thicker threads from Carrie's Threads last Thursday and today they came in. What can I say? These are so pretty, so different, so wild! They are just slightly thinner than WIldFlower thread by Caron.

I can't wait to stitch with them. I am sure I will use some for my Stitching For A Cure ornaments, but I may just have to make something fantabulous (like my new word?) with them!

Don't you just want to hold them, stitch with them? Well, leave me a msg. on this post and I will draw a name next Saturday and send the lucky winner 5 of them (my choice of colors). After all, a girl just has to share with her friends!

Barbara said...

WOW! The colors are awesome. I want to try out these threads so badly. BTW, do you just use 1 strand with the premium thicker thread? I've got to get out some charts & decide which colors I want to order. I LOVE THEM!!! Oh, yes, please enter me in your drawing. Thank you!

Barbara, yes you would just use 1 strand of the thicker thread. I played with it a little and I get nice coverage with 1 strand.
