It’s True! (About the Threads)

During the week I received my order of threads from Anita’s Little Stitches to kit up my Lizzie Kate Green Flip-Its. The thread colours were so scrumptious, I couldn’t resist a start 😉

Anyway, a little while back someone in the stitching community blogged about hearing that Weeks Dye Works were moving to make their threads colourfast. Well, take a close look at some of  the labels on the picured threads. It’s true – YaY!  I really love overdyed threads, but their not being colourfast worries me a lot. So it’s with great relief and comfort to see these labels.  Hopefully, as  new dye-lots and colours are released they will all proudly wear the colourfast label. 😎

WDW threads for Lizzie Kate's Green Flip-Its


Oh, I have another small finish to show – yet another Quaker 🙂  I must be going through a ‘phase’… and loving it.
