They're finally here!

The excitement of opening up mystery boxes never seems to fade. That was especially true of yesterday's deliveries. Oh, be still my heart. The lovely Cosmo thread we've been talking about has finally arrived.

These Japanese threads are gorgeous to say the least. They have a wonderful silky feel, and add luster with just a hint of shine. Wait till you see the new embroidery quilt using this luscious floss. I have a sneak peek to share...

But before I show you, take a look at what else we unwrapped....

...bolts and bolts of beautiful Lecien fabric.

Lecien has the most romantic florals you can imagine.

I have to resist the urge to have some of each come home with me.

Now for the sneak peek I promised. We are very luck to have my mom, Delpha, doing our embroidery samples. She's currently working on two new quilts. Take a look at what she's been stitching.

These jack-o-lanterns are part of Vintage Trick or Treat, one of Crabapple Hill's newest patterns.

Aren't they wonderful!

Can' wait to see the finished quilt. We found the perfect border fabric. While we're waiting for it's arrival, Delpha, is stitching away on the second quilt. But I'm saving the pictures of this amazing quilt for another post.

So long for now. I'll be back soon with more QP Chatter.

  1. Sweet blocks! I have yet to try the Cosmo threads but I've heard great things about them. Will you be getting the spools (with 2 strands instead of 6) as well?

    I think you should have at least a small bit of each of those fabrics! Do it! ;) (peer pressure)
