New Embroidery Threads

Before Christmas I decided to treat myself to a Christmas present of some variegated embroidery threads. I have embroidered in the past using the Cottage Garden Threads and have enjoyed using them. So I ordered a smorgasboard collection of these threads and was absolutely delighted when they arrived just before Christmas. What a treat!


These threads can be viewed at www.cottagegardenthreads.typepad.com if you are interested in seeing the variety of threads that are available.

I had also gone to my local patchwork shop before Christmas and found some beautiful blue fabrics and one of the blue threads matched these fabrics perfectly. So I have started on a small wallhanging .

 

My hobby is to design and paint wooden buttons and brooches and this wallhanging will have one of my painted buttons on it when I have finished it.
I will go back to my embroidery now and hopefully will soon have a posting of the completed wallhanging.
Cheers, Yvonne
