Threads & Beads for New Project

Another parcel received from Thistle Needleworks this morning, that I ordered from them via email. Can you believe it? Their service is excellent, good communication and handling goods. The best thing is they carry incredible range of designer threads. As you might guess, I did order threads from them, as well as beads.

Here you go....beautiful Blue Arctic Rays & White Wisper that made in Italy laying above Mill Hill Petite and Glass Beads! You must be wondering why I have been buying quite a number of Mill Hill beads lately. Meanwhile, I would keep this as my little secret until another 2 types of Kreinik Metalic Treads reached me.

French Cross Stitch Books

I received two French cross stitch books that I've bought online last 2 weeks, Esprit d'Atelier & Exercice de Style. The books are simply amazing, it would takes me ages to decide which design to be stitched first.

Some of the pictures of the books' content that I able to get from seller's website.
