....and this is what I bought at the Gathering

.....lots of hand dyed wools, (perfect for Annie Downs' xmas baubles), rusty bells, valdani threads, ric-rac and some pretty fabric to make a punchneedle holder.
Here's a close up of the valdani threads, they're hand dyed and perfect for punchneedle embroidery.

aren't they just delicious!!!


......and here's the patterns I bought


No idea when I'll get to make these as I've got patterns from the last gathering still to do!!

What gorgeous purchases. What's the thread like to stitch with (not punch needle)? I bought that tabble topper pattern a few weeks ago, sure is a cutie.

You picked up some lovely stuff, Jo. I'm wishing I'd got some of those Valdani threads now ... I guess the Crow girls will have them in the store.
