Surprise from Diane!



Posted by Picasa

What a wonderful surprise the letter carrier brought to me. DH brought in the mail and handed me a big envelope with that "what did you buy now?" look. I knew, or didn't think, that I had bought anything. Then I saw the return address. It was from my good friend, adopted sister, Diane. She shared some of her custom thread from Lady Shuttle Maker with me. Totally unexpected, and very generous. I can't wait to try them. On the left is silk Crepe Myrtle in size 20 and 80, then Summer Bouquet, Faded Summer and Terra Cotta all in size 20. The floss winder is a sample of the new Lizbeth thread from Handy Hands in Size 20 color #634.

As you can see, there is a picture of one of the new thread winders with a whole 50 yard skein of HDT in Summer Bouquet on it. Whoopee! I was afraid I would have to deepen the grooves between the petals, but it held it nicely. I haven't tried the butterfly yet.

Do keep watching for "decorated" winders. I have lots of ideas and sketches!

Thanks again Diane. You are a dear and I love you!

Pamela, you are right about her being a lovely friend and life is wonderful, yes!
I don't know that I deserve them TattingChic, but I sure do love them!
Lady Shuttle Maker, do I sense a conspiracy here? Knew about it all along huh?
