More beautiful gifts

The birthday hasn't ended beause I got more gorgeous gifts today from Jeannie -Maree. A whole host of threads and fabric and a gorgeous chart off my wish list. Even the postal envelope was pretty but Martin recycled it faster than you could say 'photograph'!


That big hunk of thread is a one-off Vicky Clayton silk and it's lovely - I need to see how much there is and if it'll work for a main colour on Long Dog's St Reatham. The fabric is a lovely piece of Italian linen that is deeper in colour and far nicer than it looks in the photo. I need to think of something special for that! The Glissen gloss is for trying out on Tomboy and the others are threads off my wish list.

Thank you so much!

    they nearly made it on time...
    the vikki clayton hanks are approx 50 yards long if that helps in your calculations..
    and i did send the glissen gloss for you to experiment with for tomboy i know the sparkle thing has been a problem for that chart for you and i love the glissen gloss...
    glad you liked the envelope too.. thats my favourite place in the world, Cradle mountain

  2. What a great present - I love the colour of the Vicky Clayton floss - it would be perfect for a marquoir.
