I was pretty excited. I don't win things very often and this was pretty amazing. My cute parcel arrived:
It's really beautiful thread, and I can't wait to use it! Thank you Aurifil!
This was also great timing, considering the package I received from my Mom at nearly the same time. She'd been cleaning out drawers in her craft cupboard, and found a few vintage embroidery transfer patterns that she thought I'd like. The really neat thing is that they were originally sent to my grandmother, some as early as 1943, and some have never been used. Take a peek at these very vintage designs:
|A variety of designs...there is even a dragon in that red Victorian looking set|
|They even suggest which colours and stitches you should use|
|Check out that postmark|
|Happy Easter everyone!|
