I guess a lot of us are watching the Olympics and what a good excuse to stitch at the same time. I must say these Athletes do us all proud, to think of all the hours they have work to get to where they are today and winning Gold medals is not everything, doing your best is what it is
Today I would like to talk about one of our suppliers, Colour Streams owned by Robyn Alexander who lives in Mullumbimby
New South Wales Australia. We carry her hand dyed silk threads and ribbons, her colours are to die for. To see her threads and ribbons go to
We get our inspirations from her colours, as you can see by some of the samples below.
In the kit Seaside Garden, the corner thread was the inspiration for the rest of the design. In the Romantic Rose Pincushion and the Trailing Rose Biscornu kit the ribbons told the story, and in Padthaway cottage most of the flowers are worked in various thicknesses of Exotic Lights. Who would not get inspired by these ribbons and threads.
I hope that this has given you the taste to try some thing new.
Happy stitching from all of us here at Christinas Craft and Gift.
