Winding Things Up

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

Here is the linen embroidery thread that I dyed with Colorhue dyes; all dry and wound on bobbins. I am so happy with the results.

Here is the bamboo thread:

I was so thrilled to find the DMC bobbin winder and bobbins. No more tangled embroidery threads.

I am almost finished packing for our early morning departure for paradise. I have 3 books and the hand-stitching on the quilt to keep me from getting bored. I have a camera and my battery charger with extra batteries to for the hunt for the green flash. I have two bathing suits which I may never wear. I only own one pair of shorts. I am so not a direct sunlight person. I have my sunhat, sunscreen and two pairs of sunglasses. What else do I need?

I have wifi at the cottage so I will be checking in with reports on our escapades. Better finish the packing and get some sleep. I must be up at 5:30 am.
