More Fanciful Stitches Thread

Tomorrow I'll reveal another project from my new book Fanciful Stitches, Colorful Quilts. Meanwhile, back in the dye studio, I must prepare more thread for tomorrow's Fist Full of Threads give-away. All those gorgeous threads given away are hand washed in buckets and buckets of water. Here you see the thread bundles soaking in their baths. It's like they're at a little spa for hand-dyed threads. Next I'll give them a facial.

Ooh what a cosy treatment they are getting! Such a great colour treat on a snowing cold day.

I am stitching away with some of the beauties from the fist-full I won. These are absolutly wonderful threads. The colors are vibrant and lush. Photos of what I am making will appear in Feb.
Thank you Laura!!
