Just in time to be one of the prizes in the Finished Stitches Challenge – DMC has released sixteen luscious new thread colors!
Want a quick recap of the prizes?
Gift certificates to TWO awesome embroidery pattern shops – Polka & Bloom and Wild Olive.
Beautiful embroidery books – the brand new Stitched Blooms and all three of Aimee Ray’s Doodle Stitching books.
And now – a pack of all the new thread colors from DMC. They’re so pretty!
Half of them are brights. You all know I like the bright, clear colors. 🙂 I’m especially excited to see some turquoise in there! I love turquoise and I’ve always felt like they didn’t have just the right shade. Now they do! And there’s a dark and light that will work really well together. Nice!
The other half are these lovely rich natural shades. So beautiful! Especially the blue and the berry color. Wouldn’t they be pretty for some fall stitching on tea towels or napkins?
The whole thread bundle is one of the prizes. Woo hoo!
So get your photos in pronto! Email them to me at blockhead[at]wendigratz[dot]com and I’ll get them posted to the projects page. Or you can post them to the Shiny Happy World Facebook page and I can grab the images from there. Just do whatever’s easiest for you. 🙂 Edited to add: This contest is now closed. But you can still look here to see all the final entries, and get inspiration for how to finish your next embroidery project! Go take a look at all the entries!
I vote for #23 because it is a clever use of applying “lemon”–good thought to remember.
