♥ Lizbeth® is here ♥

Feast your eyes on new Fall colorways -- for now ONLY in size 40 and 80 --but sizes 10 and 20 will be ready at the end of October. 

The only one missing from the lineup is #606 Charcoal. It will not be available in any size until the end of October.

From the looks of things, the back-ordered threads will be worth the wait. Oh yeah! Try not to drool on your keyboard.

Disclaimer: I do not get any compensation from Handy Hands whatsoever. I am just a happy customer (and self-professed UTJ*) caught up in thread-induced euphoria.

First up is Autumn Apple Pie. This thread makes me want to eat a warm slice of apple pie. Seriously.

Next is Blue Ice -- an arctic blast of crystalline cool. Can you say snowflakes? I feel a flurry coming on.

For purple lovers, Grape Splash brings to mind harvest celebrations and grape stomps.

Jane Eborall is the lucky winner of 25 free balls of thread for this next lovely combination -- #166 Pink Cocoa. Behind it are two more exquisite colorways: on the left, #168 Latte Foam. On the right, #697 Fudge Dark.

Shown here with the rich, creamy confections in reverse order. In a word, YUM!

Are you ready for Blue River Glades? This unspoiled blend of blues and greens evokes (at least to me) a pebbly stream bed winding through a glade of Kentucky blue grass.

Hang on to your hats, because now we're getting to the greens!

Deep. Verdant. Leafy. On the left, #675 Fern Green Medium. On the right, #676 Leaf Green Dark. Center front, the pièce de résistance, #167 Jungle Greens.

Honest and sincere thanks from the bottom of my heart to every person who submitted color suggestions and/or names for this latest batch of threads. Whether or not your suggestion(s) were chosen, you have helped shape some of the most desirable (IMHO) color mixes in the Lizbeth® line.

And the best part? You get the colors that you want!

The thread-busting challenge is looking better and better. At least the guilt-free purchases as a reward for stash-busting do.

I'm SO, SO pleased with 'mine'. Can't wait to try it. I've been looking for this combo for years and now I can have it.
I love those blue ones and the purply one is to die for. 25 balls will keep this old git quiet for a loooong time!!!!

I feel a spending frenzy coming on!

Oh, great! Now you show us the pictures of the thread. So many gorgeous colours. I love the Jungle Greens, both blues, and surprisingly, Jane's Pink Cocoa. I'm surprised I like it because of the pink, not because Jane came up with it. I'll have to wait until the size 20 thread is available.

Now I know what my Blue Ice looks like. I like all the new colors. I am not a big pink fan but I do like Jane's Pink Cocoa.

Thank you IsDihara for the sneak peek. Jane's Pink Cocoa is pretty. Definitely a must buy.

Definitely drooling! and now frantically gathering my pennies!

Thought I had a favourite - but no they are all great, it will be so interesting to see what they look like when worked with. To possess them must be like being in Tat's Heaven!!! Thank you for the sneak preview.

I think another shopping trip to the web for the new threads is about to happen, only I will have to wait for them to hit Roseground here in the UK, as postage from the US is over the top.
Those new colours are to die for.
Thanks for sharing them.

I really appreciate seeing the thread on the balls. Thanks for posting the great photos and for informing us in advance! I'll look forward to the size 20 coming up soon!

Fortunately, the new way Blogger displays photos (starting today, apparently!) does allow some magnification, and also allows an easy way to see all the photos quickly.

I am amazed at how the Lizbeth brand has evolved and even gets customers involved in creating and naming the color blends!!! Congrats to all the winners!
