Last week not only did I acquire the lovely little Christmas tree decoration pattern that I posted about last time but I also got the kit for this little sweetie. I actually got the kit because I quite liked the colours, and... because the Japanese taupe fabrics supplied were something I had never worked with before. Years ago I had some Japanese fabric but it was coarse and thick. This is different it's soft and smooth and oh so easy to sew by hand. Yep, I definitely want more of this fabric, but wait, there's more! In the kit was a skein of stranded thread - not just any old stranded thread - oh no, this was Cosmo stranded thread. Now, why hasn't any of my friends told me about the joy of sewing with this thread? It's just lovely, so smooth and silky - Uh huh, I think this is love, I want more!
Now to try and find where I can buy it from.
Have a fab weekend everyone
