I couldn't resist treating myself to some of the gorgeous threads from Jodyri Designs and three charts from Papillon Creations. I also bought some fabric from Willow Fabrics when they were having a sale.
The first photo shows a theme pack of threads I got from Jodyri Designs. It's the Butterfly and Moths thread set. The colours from left to right are:- Purple Emperor Butterfly, Chinese Moon Moth, Emperor Moth, Millonia Paradise Moth, Atlas Moth, Blue Morpho Butterfly, Green Birdwing Butterfly, Swallowtail Butterfly, Madagascar Sunset Moth and Peacock Butterfly.
The next photo is a selection of threads that I loved the colours for and just had to have. From left to right they are:- Mardi Gras (Silk), Lavender Fields, Kingfisher, Jaded Amethyst and Tanzanite Nebula.
As always I was so pleased with them and can't wait to stitch with them.
My next purchase was some charts from Papillon Creations. I have admired Around the World in 80 Stitches for a long time and I think it will be a great way to use some of my gorgeous hand dyed threads. Unfortunately I can't find a stock photo for this chart and don't want to use someone else photo without there permission but I will link here to the gallery of completed stitches.
The second chart I got from them was Celtic Beauty. Again I think this chart could lend itself nicely to hand dyed threads.
And last but not least I also purchased Celtic Warrior.
My final purchase this month was some fabric from Willow Fabrics as they were having a sale. I got a full metre of 28 Count Jazlyn in Mushroom for £15 which I think is about half the price it would normally be. It's a lovely neutral colour and will lend itself to lots of different projects.
All in all an amazingly good haul and I stayed within my budget!
Keep stitching, smiling and destashing!
