LOTS of new floss colors/sets today!

Once again the Kansas Guild has helped me out tremendously and carded 2200 skeins of floss for me at their fundraiser. Lots of beautiful colors that I received yesterday. Of course I already knew what I wanted to do with these colors....so here they are:
Heirloom Treasures Collection:
Deep rich colors in yellows, oranges, red, greens, purple, pink and a rich brown. This boxed set of 12 is $27.99

Next I took 5 beautiful browns and English Scone to make this 6 skein set. It is $14.70.
And last I have a 2 skein Christmas set...a rich red and green. It is $4.90.
I received my shipment of 60 cones from DMC this morning and the dye pot will be going for days and days.....then off to be carded by these wonderful Kansas Elves that I have come to treasure! lol
I hope they don't head for the hills when I send them 126,000 yards of floss to be carded! Maybe I shouldn't have told them first..........lol

I will be listing these on Ebay today but I always appreciate direct sales. Email if you would like any of these. nbelgian@aol.com.

Have a great day....thanks for stopping by!

First Flower Garden boxed sets for 2017

I simply love dyeing floss for the flower garden sets. I have sold many different sets over the past few years and they always sell out.

I wanted to start with some spring flowers....but my favorite names for flower sets always have Mother or Grandmother in them......these are no exception. This first set (I will be dyeing 6 flower sets this month and next) will be My Mother's Flower Garden. Great for spring flowers, birthday gift or for Mother's Day in a couple months.
These first colors are Columbines, Delphinium, Red Tulip, Grape Hyacinth, Bleeding Heart, Amaryllis, Alpine Pinks, Aster, Early Bluebells, Butterfly Bush and Iris.
Lots of variegation in half of these and subtle tone on tone in the rest.
I am carding and boxing these today. They are $27.99 plus postage. Reserve yours today or Email me with orders. I will also list them on Ebay soon.
 



Spring will be here soon....although it has been warm enough and feels like it now.....and I will have more beautiful flower colors available soon. I ordered 60 new cones from DMC that should arrive this week and hit the dye pot.

All of the colors are dyed for next month's clubs. Limited Edition and Primitive Limited Editions....I wish I could show them as they are spectacular...but you have to wait and get them in the mail!
I will show them after the orders have been received.

Have a great day. Thanks for stopping by to look at my flowers!

Listing extras of Limited Editions and new names for floss colors

I had dyed a lot of extra floss this month, a lot more than I needed for my Limited Editions for the clubs. I think I am going to put some of the boxes together and list them on ebay. I won't be listing them each month....just when I have a lot of extras. I simply don't have the room to store them and if you want another box you will be able to get them on ebay.
The ONLY difference is that you won't get the club price with the free skein. You have to join the club for the free one.

I have had a couple people email to say they didn't want to commit to a club....but as I have said, you can join for one month at a time. No strings attached....or now you can buy some of them in my ebay store after they are listed.

Now to a fun project........you can imagine after naming hundreds of skeins for dozens of collections that it is hard to come up with new color names. I like names that describe a color....not some wild and crazy name that has nothing to do with the color.

I would love some suggestions for names of colors.
Put on your thinking caps....you can post here or email me with your suggestions. nbelgian@aol.com
Lets name:
a soft pink, lavender, a light variegated blue, a dark chocolate brown, a golden brown, a medium grey and an off white to start.
I will be dyeing these colors this weekend. A drop in the bucket....I need to dye 200,000 yards of floss over the next few weeks.
All new flower collections coming this spring. I will show some colors and let you name a few more real soon.
Thanks for your help!! I know a couple of you have helped me with color names before and we had lots of fun.

Pictures of Limited Editions and Primitives

I had a couple requests to show a few pictures of some of the Limited Editions that I have been dyeing. Here are the Limited Editions for February:
Here are the Primitive Limited Editions for February:


Lots of beautiful colors to stitch with. The Primitive Limited Editions have the closest DMC conversion listed on the tags. If it is a mix of 3 variegated colors I don't put a conversion.

You can join the clubs at any time during the month and receive the current selections.

I will be receiving the 20 new colors the Kansas Guild carded for me next week and list them. Lots of shading in these new colors. And speaking of colors.....spring is just around the corner and I ordered 60 cones to over dye and hope to get them in the next two weeks. I want to do all new flower boxes....lots of great colors and flowers for Spring. 126,000 yards of new colors! The Kansas gals will be very busy carding floss next month! I don't know what I would do without them right now. I am carding all the limited editions until I get way ahead on floss. Speaking of which.....I better get to floss this morning. I have a three day marathon of the dye pot to look forward to.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Invoices for floss clubs changing in March

First I want to thank all of you who have joined one or more of the three floss clubs I have. I know you enjoy all of the floss that I enjoy dyeing for you.

I was billing on the 1st for the Ultimate Collection and the Limited Editions and mailing on the 5th. That will remain the same. But a lot of you also joined the Primitive Limited Editions which I bill on the 15th and mail on the 16th. I just have to say it is getting to be a bit much holding all the orders from the 1st to mail with orders on the 16th. So.......

On March 1st I will bill for all three clubs and mail on the 5th. If you have a certain date when you get paid that is fine, just email me and I will hold your order until you get paid. I am very easy to work with. I simply had to change this as it was getting to be a paperwork nightmare. I thought it might be hard to get all the floss dyed and packed for three clubs but I am ahead of schedule and have some dyed in advance for these clubs.

The invoices have gone out this morning for the Primitive Limited Editions. All of you who paid on the 1st for other clubs and the Primitives will have your shipments go out tomorrow.
You can join at any time during the month for any club.
You can re-order floss from a shipment you have received as I will keep a small amount in stock until they sell out. I am not dyeing huge amounts of each color to keep on hand for the Limited Editions. Only the Ultimate Collection is kept in stock all the time.

I think that covers it....thanks for understanding. I needed to simplify all of this to keep it moving smoothly. This is a tremendous amount of new colors to add each month....lots of fun.....but lots of work.

Thank you.
Nancy

Very busy with Limited Editions

One of my followers sent me an email and asked for an update on what I was currently doing......I smiled......floss of course! I keep very busy doing all of these new colors for the Limited Editions. 12 new colors on the 1st of each month for Limited Editions, 12 Ultimate Collection colors and on the 15th there are 12 new colors each month for the Primitive Limited editions. It seems like the dye pot is never resting these days. I have been carding these while I dye larger amounts to send to the guild members to card for me.
It might be sunny enough today for me to take a few pictures of some of the Limited Editions I have been sending out.....I will show those to you soon. And if you have joined the clubs and you would like more of a color be sure to reorder right away as these are very limited. I didn't want a lot of these to have to store as I am limited on space.

As I have mentioned before, my son makes the frames I use for my mottoes. We thought it was time to invest in all new equipment for the shop. We have wanted the new table saw that actually stops before it can cut your fingers! The blade quickly drops down into the table when it senses heat from a body part. When I first saw this demonstration of this saw I was amazed....and I knew that was what we needed. Years ago my husband and I were working with the table saw and he turned the saw off and reached for the door we were leveling on the bottom and he put his hand into the blade that had not stopped yet. A trip to the hospital and surgery to repair the severed tendon. I never wanted that to happen again. So this new saw is a miracle design to say the least.
 Then we needed a new scroll saw....routers, work tables to fit the new machines and lots of other goodies. The woodworkers show that was in town this weekend got quite a few sales from us. We also bought the jig to do the new boxes I want him to make with dovetail corners. First we have to catch up on frames but we do have a lot planned for later this year. I have a lot of walnut wood I want to put to good use.

I am still buying bolts of fabric.....can't help myself when I see beautiful fabrics. Of course I always want the ones that are discontinued and have to hunt them down. I must like the challenge! I did buy a lot of Lecien Antique Rose fabrics to make the fabric covered boxes that will be made from chipboard. I am thinking of closing the ebay store for a week to take a break and play with fabrics. That is about the only way I can truly take some time off and enjoy what I am doing. I want to make a collection of different box styles as I have no luck finding antique boxes in good shape with a pattern that I like. These Victorian rose prints are so beautiful....I will show them to you when I am finished....or maybe as I am working on them. I have a couple more weeks of dyeing floss to get a few months ahead on shipments and then I can play with fabrics....and a little ribbon embroidery....and a little stitching.....

Not much winter weather this year and almost no snow. It is very disappointing as I love the cold and miss all the snow we had in northeast Ohio.....I go so homesick for that area where I grew up. One of these days I will take a drive and go visit again and stroll through my memories as I go through each little town. Thank
goodness we have our memories.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

Valentine gift with each floss club shipment this month

You can imagine how busy I am since I added three floss clubs. But I am never too busy to send a little Valentine gift......so with each order that goes out this month (shipments for the Limited Editions and Ultimate Collection go out on the 5th and the Primitive Limited Editions go out on the 16th) I am adding a little something for Valentine's Day for you. A hint........of course it is red and shaped like a heart. What else would it be for Valentine's Day?!

I will be sending invoices for the first two clubs on the 1st. Remember you can join at any time to receive the current month's shipment. And if you like a certain color in the shipment please contact me right away if you want more of that color. These are limited editions and I don't have a lot of extras.

I am still very busy dyeing floss....what else......I sent the 45,000 yards to the Kansas guild to card for their fund raiser and I have dyed more than that for my other clubs. The dye pot is never finished around here. 24 new colors each month for two clubs plus a few new colors for projects and my ebay store.

I hope to find a couple days real soon so I can "play" with the new fabrics I bought and make a couple fabric covered sewing boxes. I simply love the antique ones but can never catch up with them or find ones in good shape. I need a day here and there to go antique shopping. Believe it or not everything isn't on the internet just yet.....but these poor stores are closing left and right. The internet has killed so many businesses and it is such a shame. Many years ago we would take off for a week and travel three or four states and come home with a truck load of goodies. I wish I had time to do that now....but I don't. Maybe in retirement years from now.

I finished stitching the motto for the traveling museum for It's a Wonderful Life. Now for framing and then send it to them. I will show a picture when it is framed. I simply love the motto.......and have tried to live my life this way.

All you can take with you is that which you've given away.

Have a great day!

Primitive Floss Club winner today

We have a winner drawn today for one month free in the Primitive Floss Club. These are limited editions that I will be dyeing each month, all new colors, perfect for samplers and primitive stitching....or any stitching!
This new line will also have the DMC conversion on each tag if it is possible. I list the closest match. There are times there are too many shades in a skein to match it to a color. 

The winner will receive a box of 12 skeins, 20 yards each.
The name drawn was Jeanne Hammell. Congratulations Jeanne! Please email me and give me your address. nbelgian@aol.com.

Primitive Floss Club invoices go out today

The invoices for the Primitive Floss Club will go out today. You can join any of the three clubs at any time during the month. I had a gal join yesterday for the Ultimate Collection of 135 skeins. This is a great way to add to your floss at a reasonable price. With 5 skeins you get 1 free and with the box of 12 you get one free skein.

Next week I will post a picture of the floss for these new clubs so you can see what the members are receiving. It is dark and rainy today so it isn't possible to take pictures.

I was asked by a follower what have I been up to.....floss of course! Dyeing all new colors for the Primitive and Limited Editions.
After I get a couple months ahead on these new colors I can get back to a couple of patterns I want to do. And experiment on a couple of fabric covered boxes I will be making out of heavy chipboard and mat board. I am amazed at the strength of the box after putting two fabric covered layers together. And I am dyeing some great cluny lace trims to go on and in the box. I will show pictures when it is completed. I think I will do one with a stitched top and the other with a fabric covered top and a few embellishments on it.

I am also working on a custom pattern for the traveling museum for the It's  a Wonderful Life movie. I will do two patterns for that one. A simple pattern like the one in the movie and a fancier one for me to hang on my wall. It is my favorite saying:
You can only take with you that which you've given away.
I like to hang things on my walls that mean something to me. Favorite antique mottoes, my own stitched sampler patterns and quotes and sayings that are a part of who I am and hope to be.
I am a bit eccentric....ok, if you have been to my house I am very eccentric! lol    Gotta love who you are.

So this should answer the question of what have I been doing lately. I don't post as often as I should but I put in such long days trying to get everything done and time gets away from me. I promise to post more frequently and add more pictures of my current projects.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Did you receive your floss club invoice?

Paypal has been having trouble for 4 days. It won't let me print shipping labels and gives me an error code. After talking with Paypal they told me they are aware of the problem and will get it ironed out soon.

A customer sent me an email this morning as she has not received her floss club invoice. When I tried to resend it I get another error and try again later. If you did not receive your invoice please email me. Most of the members have paid so there are just a few left.
As for shipping....if they don't get it ironed out by the 5th I will hand write labels and take them to the post office so I can get tracking numbers on each one. What a pain.....

So please let me know if you did not receive your invoice. Thank you.

A New Year, new projects, new Floss Club

The first day of the new year........a fresh start for all of us. Lots of projects planned as I am sure you all do the same. No resolutions really, just projects, fun things to do, and lots of floss!

I will be sending out the invoices for the Floss Clubs today. Remember you can join at any time during the month and receive the current selections.

I will be sending the invoices for the new Primitive Floss Club on the 15th if you missed that post. Scroll back a few posts, same details apply as the other floss clubs.

I will try to post some pictures after everyone receives their floss. First I like them to have the surprise of opening their new colors.
And speaking of new colors, I think my dye pot will be busy all this month. I will be dyeing the limited editions for next month, primitive colors for the new club, and I have a huge amount of floss to be dyed for the Kansas gals to card for me. I should take a minute to tell you how much I appreciate all their hard work carding all these boxes of floss for me. I now have Eves!!! I send out boxes of huge hanks of floss and the elves card it and send it back in neat little bundles of cards. This has helped me tremendously and I am so thankful for all the work they do. Way to go girls! Just think...if I move to Kansas I can drop off the boxes....and get to visit too. Doesn't get any better than that.

I hope we all have a great year...filled with good things, lots of stitching, surrounded with good friends and loved ones.

                                  Happy New Year!

Primitive Limited Editions Floss Club coming soon!

I survived Christmas and am packing the floss for the Limited Editions and the Ultimate Floss Clubs. Invoices will go out on the 1st.
You can join in any club at any time. I want to thank you for the great response I have had for the clubs.

I am always adding more....you know me well by now! And I was thinking that I get so many compliments on the Primitive colors...why not do a Primitive Limited Editions? It will be the same pricing as the other clubs. Buy 5 skeins and get one free and on the box of 12 you will be buying 11 and get one free. In the states it is $14.85 for 6 skeins each month or $29.55 for the box of 12 skeins with postage included.
20 yards per skein as usual.

This will be for the 15th of each month. Buy 1 month, 3, 6, or 12. If you pay for 12 months in full you will receive one month free. Quite a deal. Invoices will go out on the 15th.
Yes International  members may join and you can get quarterly shipments so your postage would only be $4.50 per month.

Email with inquiries or to sign up.
nbelgian@aol.com.

I will dye some gorgeous, very primitive colors each month. I will dye a good amount of each color so it will be in stock for at least a month or two if you want to order more singles of a certain color.

I better start warming up the dye pot for a marathon!
Thanks for stopping by!

Free floss each month with the Floss Club

A very busy Christmas season is over, Santa Nancy has mailed all the gifts....time to dye more floss for limited editions.
Have you joined the Floss Club?  Quite a few of you have joined and I thank you.
You get a free skein each month. 20 yards of over dyed floss goes a long ways. If you purchased that from another company it would be over $10. So if you bought 6 skeins (and you are getting one free) 120 yards that would be over $60 from other companies. You will pay $14.85 delivered as my floss is wholesale to you. The 12 skein box also has one free skein.

I have had many requests over the past few years for a Floss Club. I thought I might be a bit too busy for this....and then I thought it would be a great way to share with more stitchers...so here are the details!
Two choices for floss!


I gave this a lot of thought. I know many of you would like the Ultimate Collection of 135 skeins (I will be adding more colors next year). It is $333.  With DMC conversions on each label. Lets do this:

If you have already purchased some of the Ultimate Collection I will also have another option!

Join at any time, just remember I ship on the 5th of each month.

You can join two ways. You can buy 6 skeins a month, 20 yards each and $2.45 each of the Ultimate Collection (*****you will be buying 5 and get one free!) $12.25 plus $2.60 postage. (states only)

***Adding this note....after several inquiries....yes I will ship world wide if you don't mind paying the postage. I can also combine  shipments and mail bi-monthly or quarterly. Maybe get a friend to sign up and split the postage would also be a suggestion.

Or you can buy 12 skeins in a gift box $26.95 (***** you will be buying 11 and get one free!) plus postage of $2.60.

*****OR you can receive special limited editions I will dye each month! Same deal...buy 6 (one free or buy 12 gift boxed and get one free!)  $2.45 each. I will try to do theme colors if a holiday falls in that month.

Now....you can buy one  month, 3 months, 6 months or be put on auto invoice on the 1st of each month, or you can pay for the whole year and get one month free!!!! email with orders. nbelgian@aol.com

Yes you can change from 6 to 12 skeins if you would like more at any time. So many questions coming in!

You can use paypal or personal check. I will be mailing these out on the 5th of each month so I would like payment by the 4th. I can send paypal invoices to you each month if that works for you.

I will have new boxed floss sets in early January as I will be dyeing floss all this week. It's always fun to start the new year with new floss colors!

Thanks for stopping by. Time to start on the dye pot.

12th Day of Christmas winner!

I want to thank all of you who took the time to enter each day and leave your beautiful compliments and comments. It is my pleasure to give back to the stitching community.

A few Christmas decorations

I am always asked to post some of my Christmas decorations.....and this year I was so busy I almost forgot. Here are a couple pictures.
I filled my antique cart with Santa sitting in his chair and positioned some of my Motionette elves around him. Their arms and heads move and some of them have lighted candles. They are simply adorable. Some of the elves have a saw or a hammer and work benches. Rudolph's nose is lit and his head turns from side to side. I know....it should have been a movie clip so you could see them all moving.



Santa Nancy needs a bigger house! My next house will have a Christmas room and I will finally be able to display everything. My son says I need the toy store in the Home Alone 2 movie.....I agree!
 
Thanks for stopping by.

8th Day of Christmas, two winners today!!

I want to thank all of you who took the time to enter each day and leave your beautiful compliments and comments. It is my pleasure to give back to the stitching community.

On the 8th Day of Christmas......Santa Nancy gave to me:
 
 
Lets have two winners and each one will get a chart. Jingle as Ye Enter, Jingle as Ye go which makes an adorable door hanger or wall hanging. It also comes with a free ornament pack. The birds are holding small brass bells hanging from a piece of floss in their beaks. I display mine every Christmas. As a companion chart I made a primitive Merry Christmas chart called Decorating the Tree. Cute little birds decorating this tree and as a bonus for both charts I am including all the over dyed floss and bells! These are some of my best sellers for that reason. It comes with all the instructions and pictures for a simple...yes very simple, finish. No hand sewing it closed when you are finished. A simple fold over flap secured with a button.
 
The two names drawn this morning were Cathy Smith and Patricia Geary. Please email me and give me your address. nbelgian@aol.com
 
Stay tuned.....I still have more great gifts in my bag!
