Hand-dyed threads

I recently ordered some hand-dyed threads from SharonB, who was de-stashing. They arrived all the way from Australia with a hand-written note.

Sharon is so thoughtful and appropriate. I thought it was so sweet of her to remember (and mention) my band-sampler project. I hope I grow up to be like Sharon someday.

The vibrancy of the thread’s colors nearly took my breath away and I can’t wait to find just the right project for them. In the meantime, here are some links about hand-dyed threads.

Do you stitch with hand-dyed threads? Are you intimidated by them? (I am, a little.) Do you dye your own? Did you even know such a thing existed?!

  1. I love stitching with hand-dyed threads and have been doing so for many years. I have found that I prefer them for cross-stitch projects; when I embroider with them, my project never seems to turn out quite as I’d hoped. It must be because the cross-stitch designers take time and figure out what colors work best, while I just jump right in without giving it much thought. Hmmmm, maybe it’s time to quite doing that, lol. :)
