So Excited..a new thread adventure

Good Morning..I hope all is well in your world.  It is hot and humid in mine so I am staying indoors.  Don't let me fool you..I stay inside most of the time.  The heat and humidity just gives me more of an excuse to grab a hook.  I did finish one doily last week..and I am working on a runner I hope to have finished sometime this week..and maybe start another one..both are customer requests..I like the requests as I don't have to decide what pattern or color to make..it can take me a long time to decide what to do and what color to do it in. 



I made this doily with DMC Cebelia thread..color #842..kind of a brown taupe color, the flowers are made with #754..a peach..and well the dark brown is a discontinued color..that I have just a few balls of..Speaking of balls of colors...I am excited here..
Hopefully by the first of September I will be carrying BABYLO thread..made by DMC...and yes I will still carry Cebelia..but here is some info on the babylo and then I think you will see why I want to have it...DMC Babylo is a singed by flame and twice mercerized which gives it its strength and softness, and silky, clean and even finish.  Strong and easy to work with this thread offers 4 thicknesses, and up to 47...yes..47 colors..size 10 comes in 50 gram balls, 292 yards a ball...it is also 100% long staple cotton..
I won't be able to carry all the colors right away as I don't have that kind of money, but if all goes well I hope to eventually have them all..and yes only size 10 for now...  Until now this thread has not been available in the states..  I will be selling babylo by the ball..I will keep you informed...and wish me luck..;

This is right up my alley, I love anything with the irish rose in the center. This is so beautiful. I made one a while back with a big Irish Rose in the center, a vintage pattern.
