I love the threads, the thread holder was from an exchange way back in I think 2010, Joanie no more blogging, exchanged this I use it most then my other holders.
The pins and thread are interesting and useful.
Look at the beautiful ribbon from Lady Dot Creations, so prety.
This Orts piece is done on silk canvas, I do like working on silk, not so much filling in the empty spaces.
I need to put these floss tags together and add the punch holes, I bought these fromhttp://happinessiscrossstitching.blogspot.com she has some lovely patterns and other items in her Etsy Shop, stop over and have a look at Lynn's items for sale, you will not be dissapointed.
