'Tis the season to clean out the thread cabinets!
I am in dire need of more thread storage in the atelier, so this lot of Christmas colored thread needs a new home. For the first of my Christmas themed giveaways, I am offering~
This cute hinged-lid poinsettia tin filled with the following balls of thread:
1 ball of size 20 Lizbeth in color #144
1 ball of size 50 Altin Basak in color #369
1 vintage ball of size 70 Coats & Clark in color #21
3 balls of size 80 Majestic in colors #800, 829, & 854
1 spool of size 12 wt. Sulky Blendables in color #4104
2 bobbins of size 12 Sulky Blendables in Antique Xmas & a red I cannot find the # or name for
& a mystery tatted goody (which may or may not be the one pictured).
As always, to enter this giveaway you must be a follower of the blog. Simply click on the google "Join this Site" button located on the right of the blog just below the poll. Deadline for entry is: Sunday, December 4th. The winner will be selected by a random number generator and notified via email on Monday, December 5th. Good luck!
Please note: I tried the Lizbeth thread as everyone has been going on about how great it tats up. Well... I was sadly disappointed. It was NOT a good thread for my work. It felt a little too stretchy and I just did not like the texture or the way it tatted up. It has been my experience that different tatters prefer different types of threads. I have very strong opinions as to what works for me and what doesn't. The Lizbeth does not work for me at all- I wish it did. Hopefully, it will find a home where it will be used and enjoyed.
The Sulky Blendables 12 wt. quilting cotton thread tats like a dream!!! As do the others in this giveaway.
Jim is busy hanging the lights on the exterior of the house and could probably use a hand. I had better run and see if I can help. Until tomorrow~
