Plans for my Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe threads

Let's chat a moment about those threads I won recently from the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe.  I knew they were going to be pretty, but what I didn't know ~ only ever having seen them in pictures ~ was 1) exactly how *much* thread I would be getting and 2) how luscious and thick and yummy they would be!

I took this picture to share with one of my groups on FB.  I put my hand next to the threads so you could see the scale.


See what I mean?  That is *a lot* of thread!  And the quality is awesome.  Here are some more pictures so you can see the colors.

From left to right: Autumn Leaves Variegated, Copper Dark, and Copper.

Squash, Autumn Orange, and Burnt Orange. 

 Antique Pumpkin Light.

Now as for the others in the package, I already know what I'm going to do with them. I'm going to use them in the JOY sal that I'm doing with some friends.  The colors lend perfectly to this project.

These colors, again, left to right are: Autumn Leaves Gold, Golden Acorns (has a beautiful variegation,) The Best Orange, Autumn Red, and Dark Brown.

Truly, I'm dying from the pretty.  She has a Halloween set of threads that I'm currently drooling over.  I just may have to treat myself some time soon.  :0)

(The Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe did not ask me to review or post about these threads.  This post is my own personal opinion I wanted to share with my bloggy friends.)

  2. The thread is beautiful and is going to look so good on our Joy SAL. I have been looking at those threads and trying to decide just which ones I want to order.
