hand stitching thread giveaway! :)
I was rooting around through the thread stash today looking for just the right color to use on a new project and I found these:
Your eyes do not deceive you. Those are pastel threads. That were in my stash. Want a closer look?
Years ago I owned a brick and mortar store that specialized in hand stitching. I'm not sure if that is where these came from or if I purchased them at a quilt festival. I'm fairly certain they are hand dyed threads from Artfabrik but I can't be sure, I don't save a single label on anything.
At any rate, they are lovely things, aren't they? But I can say with absolute certainty that they will continue to age in the stash because they aren't a palette I use more then once every five years.
So I want one of you to have them! :) They look to be in two colorways but in in both size 5 and size 8 perle. There are four skeins total. I've no idea how many yards there are but there are lots, I've cut the skeins how I normally to to stop myself from threading up a five mile long piece of thread to stitch with.
Leave a comment on this post by the end of week and I'll pick a winner on Saturday April 13 to send these pretties to. Just tell me why you love hand stitching and you'll be entered in the drawing! Happy commenting and stitching!! :)
