Yeah Mail!

I got an order from Nordic Needle today! It was mainly some threads I needed to finish kitting up some projects. Nordic Needle carries a lot of different varieties of threads from Anchor to Au Ver a Soie. Here's what I got...

Blackbird Designs Summer House - Fabric and Threads Blackbird Designs Summer House
Threads for Blackbird Design's Summer House.

The fabric is Summer Sky hand-dyed Jobelan, which I already had. Katie from Fils'Harmonie stitched Summer House on blue and I loved it! The blue I've chosen is brighter than hers, but I think it will still look pretty - at least I hope! :) Here's a link to her picture trail album - scroll down to see finished pic.

edited to add: I found another Summer House stitched on blue linen on Bea's blog Les Broderies de Bea (scroll up to view).

Goode Huswife - Samplers - Fabric and Thread Goode Huswife Samplers
Crescent Color's Wavy Navy and 36 ct. Creme Brulee linen (already had fabric)for the The Goode Huswife's Samplers pattern.

Threads and Fabric for Indigo Rose's Peek-a-Boo Pin Cushion Indigo Rose - Peek-a-Boo Pin Cushion - chart
Anchor Pearl cotton and Silk threads for Indigo Rose's Peek-a-Boo cushion chart.

Fabric and Specialty Threads for Just Nan's Cynthia's Sampler Just Nan's Cynthia's Sampler
DMC Perle Cotton and Waterlilies Silk for Just Nan's Cynthia's Sampler (fabric is 32 ct. Cream Belfast).

And last...

Now I've got several projects kitted up... hmmmm... what should I start next??? :)


  1. What lovely mail! I love getting stash in the mail. That peek a boo cushion looks like an interesting place to start.

  2. They're all great projects, several I have myself! I'd have a hard time choosing too!
