Unrepentant Thread Junkie

New Stash as of June 2009

I used to think that Flora thread was the bee's knees (actually I still do) but since it is getting harder and harder to come by, I am slowly becoming a Lizbeth convert.

Who can argue with the quality or the value? It's 100% Egyptian cotton! 'Go ahead,' I say to my childlike inner fibernut, 'let a lil' luxury grace your lace.'

And so I bought more. This time in size 40 variegated. The recent sale, plus a free shipping/handling offer was simply too good to pass up. Psst, I hear rumors of another sale coming up soon...

Of course hand-dyed threads (HDTs) are the only things thwarting total Lizbeth assimilation.

Since TattingChic has already entertained us with with her clever "Walk Like an Egyptian" clip, I humbly present my own homage with this YouTube clip from "Asterix & Obelix Meet Cleopatra."


Adventure after adventure, these two adorable Gauls almost single-handedly stave off Roman conquest with the help of a magic potion brewed up by the village druid. Love the artwork! Love the French humor. Good ones such as this never lose their appeal.

Much like hand-dyed threads, LOL! I know you can empathize with my HDT addiction love affair.

Oh my! Don't these colors just cry out Hand-Dyed-Thread? Bright. Cheery. A sun-kissed harbinger of Autumn splendor. I think I'm in love.

LOL! That was a great little clip!
Very well done.

The harbinger leaf - so pretty. Aren't the colours just perfect!

You can never be too rich, too thin or have too much thread. These things I know to be true.

You're right about that leaf - beautiful colors! Wouldn't that look lovely in thread? The only problem with having a lot of thread is having enough time to try them all!!!
