I AM DONE---

Well--only for the March blocks--
it took alot of chocolate--

and some new thread--
but here is what I ended up with for my first three blocks--
Ahhh--'Di'  you were going to use all red thread and all red fabrics--right???
Ahhhh--yes she was "going tooo"--
but--
she kept watching this 'station' and seeing all the variegated threads in the reds and greens so she went shopping--online--!!!
she found a new line to her called "Threadworx"--it is an overdyed floss--
and the name of this is "Christmas time"--sooooo!!!!
She ordered a skein and it works up lovely--
I ordered from 123stitch.com
and they are really fast in mailing out the orders--
they also have other lines of thread!!!
Ok--I got my first three done--
Is it April yet for the next set!!!!

You'd make a great salesperson for Ghirardelli and Threadworx! Gorgeous blocks, too!

Love the blocks & the threads Di. I am using Threadworx too in a deep red. I am also using a variegated grey/teal for my Life Is Beautiful stitcheries. At the time we could get them in Perth at Country Patchwork Cottage but they are no more so thanks for the link. Tracee xx
