So what’s new you ask? How about Furr-Fuzz-Fun from Planet Earth Fiber. Great for stitching animals, hair or how about some puffy clouds? Stitch as is with a single strand or doubled, blended with Burmilana or Designers Dream.
I love these smaller cards as it is easy purchase of more than 1 or 2 colors. Lots of great shades…how about that black to stitch that black cat or for me even that smoky gray when I stitch Mrs. Cat later this summer.
Rhinestones from Sundance Designs in lots of great colors! Such as Clover, Saffron, Red Rose and Black…
A new thread from Dinky~Dyes and no I am not using it on this canvas! It is a silk wool blend called Jumbuck. Now remember that Dinky~Dyes was originally a company from the land down under, so their thread names are familar words to Australia. Jumbuck is an Australian term for sheep as featured in the poem “Waltzing Matilda.”
It is a beautful thread and feels great in your hands and very enjoyable to work with. The lighter one was dyed to the likeness of their silk color named Hibiscus. It is great for basketweave on 13 mesh and believe that like Silk & Ivory it would be too heavy for 18 mesh.
The Furr-Fuzz-Fun and the Rhinestones were from Winter Market. Now this doesn’t even take into account what new threads will be intoduced at The TNNA Summer Market which is less than a month away!
It has been really cold, cold, cold…well for San Diego that is, the last few mornings. Yesterday it was about 41 and I could see my breath! Yes I know that I shouldn’t be complaining. But you know what? next week it is going to be in the 90′s! What the hey?
Can you see the little (well really not so little!) patch of fur that is missing on her back? She has since had another spot of fur shaved and tomorrow we go to have her stitches removed! She has been extremely clingy these last few weeks as she doesn’t let me get far from her sight, sleeping under the covers with me at night and following me all over the house. Silly little girl.
and until next time…keep on stitching
