Hand dyed space dyed embroidery silk

Well there I was dying some fabric when inspiration came and slapped me around the chops. Why not dye some embroidery thread!?!

So I space dyed some pale lemon thread and this is what I got. Can’t wait to stitch with it. Now I think I might be a little obsessed with it. Might need to buy some more to dye.


Sausage Dog Thread Bobbins

I love a freebie and the from last months CrossStitcher was a cracker. 6 thread bobbins in the shape if sausage dogs. How cool is that?

And they came with 6 brightly coloured embroidery threads too. Now I want all my threads to have these doggy shaped bobbins.
