Thinking Ahead ~

Good Saturday Morning Friends & Folk ~
have you warmed up yet?

I have exciting news to share ~
in collaboration with the wonderful 
~ Valdani Inc. ~
makers of fine threads for needlework

I am happy to announce that we will be offering 
our first of four designer collections
...from Valdani & Notforgotten Farm!!

the 'official' name of this specific designer collection is
Spring designer collection from Notforgotten Farm ~ Lori Brechlin

aren't they loverly?

there are 12 colors in this, my springtime palette…
and they are:

H 209 ~ khaki black
H 210 ~ melancholy purple
JP 7 ~ faded marygold
JP 12 ~ seaside
O 154 ~ dark antique gold
O 178 ~ tea dyed stone
O 506 ~ cinnamon swirl
O 510 ~ terra cotta swirl
O 531 ~ black nut
O 534 ~ quiet fall
O 538 ~ cottage smoke
P 2 ~ olive green

they remind me of little Easter eggs in my bowl of raw flax :)

...most of you who follow my work know that I use DMC cotton threads,
and I will continue to use them
with the beautiful threads from Valdani
~ I think this makes my work even more unique
... and a little more fun you to complete!

I will be offering two new punch needle designs soon,
using these very Valdani threads & DMC threads together.
I can't wait to show you their finishes!!
