Something New!!!

I'm excited to say that my signature set of Valdani threads are back in stock!  


As promised, I am in the throes of writing up the tutorial for my first punch needle design...

which I'm hoping to have that finished in the next day or two.  

The threads that I used for the design are included in the above kit and may be purchased in my Etsy shop HERE and still at the amazingly low price of $49.95.

And for the "something new", I've also decided to carry a selection of 12 hand-picked colors of the Valdani 6 strand, 100% cotton floss.  

These are my "go to" colors whenever I want the primitive look and want to use a floss rather than the 2 ply, 12 wt thread.  The whipped edge that surrounds the punched sheep design above was done using the floss.

The Valdani floss is also hand dyed and COLORFAST.  The variegation that results from the hand dyeing adds interest, depth and dimension to any hand stitched work.  

All the basic colors are included in the introductory kit and it too is available for purchase in my Etsy shop using the same link as above.

Wait till you see the new design I've just come up with!  

It's the reason as to why I've been a little remiss with the tutorial I promised.

Stay tuned...and

Happy stitching!

I want to compliment you on your Santa quilt in this current issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects. It is stunning, combines both my love of quilting and stitching. I won't get time to start on it until after the holidays, but I am chomping at the bit!

I bought your set of valdani perle cotton a few months ago and finally broke them out for a project this weekend. What a great selection of colors! I needed four colors to match the wools I was using and found the perfect match for each one in your set. Of course, I knew you would be the one to offer the "perfect" selection of colors.
