Lovely Boucle BE Flosses and Book

Hello Everyone, I have fallen in Love with Brazilian Embroidery and all their glorious threads. Last week I ordered some goodies from my new friend Peggy Crawford from Flower Garden Designs down in Virginia. Peggy email addy is peggy@vt.edu and her phone number is 540-552-5106. They arrived today. See the photo above.

The flosses I love the most are the "Boucle" Flosses. I love their texture and the lovely effects they give to your embroidery project. The colors are all so beautiful. I can hardly wait to use them. Peggy included a wee surprise in my package of the "Yellow Fracle" floss that is not made anymore. It looks very similar to the boucle threads. Thanks you Peggy.

I also bought the plastic thread organizers and of course I have No clue how to get the threads in them but the wee plastic thingy is suppose to do the trick. I will play with that this evening. I also bought some special BE needles to use with my flosses.
I also received a BE book at Christmas time called Thorns & Roses by Debbie Kelley published by DK Designs in Roseburg Oregon, Phone number is 541-440-9571 and Debbie addy is dkdesign@jeffnet.org This book is absolutely wonderful. I specifically wanted to buy this book so I could learn how to create BE roses to add to The Crazy Quilt Of My Dreams. The specific pattern in the book that I absolutely love is called "Wild Roses pattern #3819". The other pattern I really like in the book is called "My Favorite Wild Roses, pattern #3825." I am looking forward to learning how to create them. The pincushion above is required to create the pattern called My Favorite Wild Roses. It say Pincushion for Drizzles. So I am truly very excited about learning all the lovely BE stitches. More to come!
