A selection of 8 skeins of bright red handdyed embroidery thread. The red is predominantly an orange red with a few of the skeins having a slightly blue'ish tint The threads are all natural fibers like cotton, silk, linen, bamboo etc. The threads are space dyed with Procion dyes. Due to the propeties of the natural fiber, the dyes are accepted in slightly different ways resulting in lovely subtle colors and coordinated shading.

The threads are great for any projects that needs the extra touch of hand embroidery.

Please note that the photo is an example. You will recieve threads very similar, but not identical to the ones shown on the photo. Please be aware as well that the 'real life' colors might vary slightly, due to the computer monitor setting.

The threads are carefully rinsed and washed after dying and are very unlikely to run on a cold wash, but to be on the safe side, I cannot garantie it. I use my threads in project that don't get washed.
Each skein measure approx: 11-13 yards (10-12 meters) :

The 3 small stars are three dimensional and made from painted and folded paper strips. I have updated the look of this very traditional Danish Christmas ornament.
The stars are painted with metallic paint.
The three stars are packed in a cellophane bag.

Ideas for using the stars:
- Several stars look lovely placed on a table cloth or table runner.
- Placed one star at each table setting, for a little extra to take home.
- Use as a stocking filler.
- Several stars look lovely gathered in a decorative bowl.

Height/Width: 1 inches (3,25 cm)
Depth: 1 inch (2,5 cm)

This Flower Brooch can bring a touch of color to any area that needs a bit of a lift. It looks just as great on a piece of clothing as it does on a purse.
The Flower Brooch can be used as ?that little something? adding the finishing touch, when wrapping a present for that special person.
What about pinning it to place setting cards for the ladies to take home or?.

The double layered brooch is densely sewn on the machine using a selection of sewing threads. The flower will keep the shape and not collapse, due to the used technique. The center is embellished with beads, most likely recycled ones. There is a metal bar with a safety feature, sewn in place on the back.

The brooch measures:
Diameter: approx. 2 inches (5 cm)
Deep: approx. 1/4 inch (3mm)

For this card, which could double up as a mini picture when framed, I used a natural colored silk noil. After a bit of machining, I added a dab of paint to enhance the texture. Had a lovely time choosing from my selection of hand dyed threads and then deciding on what type of hand embroidery stitches to use.

The finished embroidered piece is mounted in a 2x2 inch (5x5cm) window of a three-folded card, making the blank inside of the card just as nice as the outside. The back of the card has an oval stamp reading ?a handmade card especially for you? and a small golden label.

The 4x6 inch (10,5x15 cm) card is made from recycled paper pulp. It is ivory colored with a slight texture. The envelope is white. Card and envelope is for protection packed in a clear cellophane bag.
