What's better than stash in the mail?

The answer is easy -- stash in the mail with extra surprise stash inside!!

I ordered some threads from Carrie's Creations a month ago for one of my UCJC projects (Cirque des Carreaux by Ink Circles). Of course I couldn't just order the 5 skeins of silk in Epiphany. (Though they are gorgeous!)

I had to add to my silk collection , so I ordered 2 skeins of Fantasm, and a skein each of Foxfire and Tiger Eye. I also ordered a skein of Hearts on Fire (even though it only comes in cotton and not silk).

I was beginning to wonder where my order was, it hadn't ever taken this long to get my threads before. I'm not sure what the delay was, and I'm not even sure that's why the extra special surprise was in my parcel, but I was OVER THE MOON excited when I realized that Carrie had included 4 limited edition skeins of silk floss. *DROOL*

My big dilemma now is that I need to revisit all of my floss decisions for my UCJC projects, because I just have to use some of this beautiful silk. Did I mention that I am addicted to stitching with silk? Seriously -- I would stitch everything in silk if I could afford it!


  1. Holy cow, those threads... Phantasm is just gorgeous, and so is Epiphany! Not that the others aren't beautiful, but those two really caught my eye.

    *sneaks off to website* :p

  2. What gorgeous silk threads you have! And a nice bonus of extra threads, wow!

  3. Absolutely stunning colors, and I can see the sheen even on my laptop screen. Those extras look like they were worth the wait.
