My threads are here!

My threads have literally just arrived! I'm so excited! Now all I have to do is choose which one to use. Will it be, Red Carnation, Hugs n Kisses, Running Postman, Kangaroo Paw, Canna Lilly, Cherry Blossom, Plum Pudding, Bush Christmas, Waratah, Burgundy or Burgundy Cream??? Oh, which will I choose.

Plum Pudding and Bush Christmas sound very appropriate, although Running Postman sounds intriguing.

This Hillbilly is very very jealous. Thank you for making me sin the sin of coveting...on a Sunday no less!

They are wonderful. Can't wait to see what you decide.

You lucky thing. I think you need to sit & stroke the threads for awhile, talk to each of them & then give them a bit of a hug & the right one will stand out. You should see me in a quilt store! Tracee xx
