In my part of the world we say you are a fool if your passion for a pursuit overcomes all practical sense. I am a stitching fool, and I stitch foolishness.

Treasure Trove

The silks I ordered for my Cabinet of Curiosities arrived.

Drool . . .

There is just something about the luminescence of silk. The way it glows, the way it feels, the way it glides through fabric.

This is going to sound a wee bit odd, but having the threads in front of me is making the caskets I want to embroider really real. Before, they were just a couple of ideas but now I can start to think about the textures and colors that will fill in the outlines.

I do have a problem. It's so pretty I almost hate to take it out of its packaging and actually stitch with it!


  1. oooh Im so drooling, absolutely gorgeous threads:)
    have fun girl!:D

  2. They are beautiful I keep getting mine out and looking at them, the colours are amazing.
