My overdyeds came today in the mail. Happy dance!


This is the most overdyed threads I have gotten at one time. But I needed wanted to venture into some colors I was not as familiar with so, here ya go.

I'm using this Snowball color as one of the main colors for Abbie's fur the Abbie summer sampler. Wait, I have a black shirt on today and I can just use all the doggie hair from my shirt. Isn't that gross? Sorry. LOL
The other color is called Noel and is absolutely beautiful, Weeks Dye.

I tried several Fallish shades. I designed a small Halloween design and had to see what the colors really looked like first before putting it all together.


I added many new colors to my stash that I had never seen before!

Next comes organizing these into my stitching studio and probably scattering a few into projects tomorrow.

I'm just going to take a deep breath and stare at these colors for a while, then I'll probably go to bed and have some wild color dreams.

One of the disadvantages to ordering in bulk is that the lot variations can vary, sometimes a good bit but in this tight economy, I'm just as happy with this. If you order in bulk, savings are greater and choices are more.
So, I guess you have to weigh the advantages and disadvantages. Right now, I'm very happy with these colors to add to my stash.

Hope your Monday was a colorful one too.
