It’s hard to believe we are already into December and onto the third installment of A Stitcher’s Christmas, a series of pre-Christmas give-aways here on Needle ‘n Thread.
When it comes to What Embroiderers Love Best, I think I can safely say that we love embroidery thread. The more I embroider, the more I love thread – all kinds of thread! When I see thread, I see possibilities. Don’t you?
Today’s give-away, courtesy of Colour Complements, involves a gorgeous collection of hand-dyed threads in a glorious four-season array of color.
Winter, spring, summer & fall! All four seasons are represented in this collection of a dozen skeins of cotton embroidery threads. To provide you with plenty of texture, you’ll find stranded cotton (floss) and perle cottons intermixed.
Lorraine at Colour Complements hand dyes beautiful threads of all sorts, including specialty threads and ric-rac. Her sampler packs are extremely popular! She also supplies thread packs for various needlework designs on the market.
I love the riot of color on Lorraine’s website! It’s fun to browse, just to revel in color! The Colour Complements blog is also a lot of fun to follow. That’s where you’ll find out about new color and thread releases, but it’s also where she highlights needlework projects of all sorts worked with threads from Colour Complements.
This give-away is now ended. Thanks for participating!

Coming Up on Needle ‘n Thread
Well, on Wednesday, I’ll announce the winner of last Friday’s give-away (if you haven’t entered yet for the beautiful Crewel Work Company Kit, jump over there now and enter!)
I’ll also show you my “stitching break” project. It’s not a break from stitching – it’s just a project that makes a nice stitching break. It’s easy and relaxing, perfect for this time of year.
On Friday, we’ll have installment #4 of A Stitcher’s Christmas, 2018. I’ll give you a hint: ummmm… it’s two things, and they both begin with S (as in scissors… or silk…). But of course, I’d never want to ruin the surprise and tell you straight out.
I hope this first week of December is off to a grand start for you!
