Look what I discovered!

I needed some threads for a project I had started
and ordered them from a local shop.
So on Monday I went to visit HERE and WOW WOW WOW..
 I was amazed with the gorgeous hand-dyed
 threads they made in the in Adelaide.
and just so close to home....they are 20 mins away.
 Primke threads... 

 68 different colors and they are adorable..

They can be ordered  via their website and paid for via Paypal.
 Variegated and lots of color ranges, in Pearl 5, 8 and 12ct
 and also in a stranded cotton...

They are just so lovely to feel and look at...
 I bought a couple to try.. the colors are so vivid

These are what I bought home with me..
I will be back to the shop to get some more soon...
What I like about them is that the color changes
on the variegated about every 1 1/2in to 2in and that's great
when stitching...not like the 6in in some threads...
I have traced a stitchery from the latest Vignette
to have a try...will show the progress soon.

 Also I have some fabulous news to share...
 I am so excited about it.....Mums the word!

Happy Stitching

Oh I LOVE that store!! My grandparents live just around the corner from them and I looked in on them last year when we were there for Christmas, while on a short walk - heading back down again this Chrissy too!!
I wasn't a quilter/patcher at that time, but this year I am looking forward to checking it out with brand new eyes this year!!
I didn't realise they made these in store!! I did check them out, but wasn't really thinking about how I could use them then. Boy are they getting some good business from me this time round, lol!!
