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.
