More stash!

I told you shopping on-line was too easy! These fibers arrived yesterday from Nordic Needle. Most of them are DMC #5 pearl, but several are Anchor brand (they were on sale!). The three skeins on the right are variegated; the middle one has a metallic thread running through it too. I got all excited when I saw that.

The three spools are linen thread in the same weight. That will give a very different texture on a temari ball. I hope the thread is not too rough, it looks like it might shred the wrapping on a mari. I only got 3 spools because I don't know how they will stitch up. I will have to experiment.

Did I mention that I love floss?

LOL, and here I thought I was the only one who did that. Just randomly shopped for thread, eventually finding the project to fit them...someday...lol Good finds though, and getting them on sale makes it even better!
