Here come the Girls!

That bottom one in the middle looks a bit bandy .......................
..................... and I think the one on the far left is doing the Charleston.

Here they are all packed up and ready to hopefully do a bit of fundraising at our next exhibition.


You may remember me saying two or three posts back - 'I must not buy any more threads'!!! Well - I just happened to be browsing the Stef Francis website and took a peek into the Special Offers bit and came upon these bargains. I justified my weakness by buying the three packs above for my daughter.

Of course, it would have been foolish not to take advantage of the other offers so I bought this pack of silk threads, whose colours are far more lovely in reality, ........................

.................... and these cotton ones which are very useful as they come in such a range of thicknesses. I just love using hand-dyed and space-dyed threads - they seem to be so versatile and give a special touch to numerous projects.
While I was there, I thought these silk fibres would be lovely incorporated into silk paper or worked under the embellisher. All I now need is an idea to start working on!

Love your button babes Heather. As for Stef Frances - I find it best not to go anywhere near her site unless I wish to spend a lot of money!

When I was doing y C&G (pre Computer) I rang Steph francis and asked if they would send me some threads on sale or return basis. I ordered £50 worth..a lot in those days, and I just couldn't send any of them back!
I agree they are gorgeous.
