Just Threads


My order for these gorgeous Valdani threads arrived, the small box is their three strand floss on a roll for applique or punchneedle and the other three boxes are variegated perle cottons. so now I can start my Reindeer table runner and a reproduction penny rug using 2 inch pennies on a black background, so I wanted a variegated black so the pennies would stand out, they are black wool with different colored centers, also in wool. I need 397 pennies or maybe it's 297, I don't have the pattern in front of me, I had already completed 6 rows and didn't like the fact that the pennies didn't stand out, so I'll start all over. Plus I had used wool felt and didn't like the look so will use wool as the background instead.

  1. Oh aren't they gorgeous! Sometimes I could just sit and look at balls of thread/perle cotton alone! Pretty!

  2. Oh they are so pretty - I would have to buy an extra set, just so I could keep the boxes as they are to drool over *s*

  3. Those threads are gorgeous and packaged so neatly in the boxes. I agree with Dawn and Libby, it would be fun to just drool over them.
