    All colors have at least two shades in them and I listed the closest DMC conversion if I could match them, the variegated Autumn Bounty has 5 shades with very light to dark. I think this first photo shows the actual colors the best. The other photos are a little lighter.

    New floss collections, colors, lots of news

    Lots of new collections are in the works...being selected, dyed, sent to be carded....so much to do in August.

    Before I start on the new collections I want to say that Paypal is sending out invoices today....I see a dozen have gone out....and I still don't know why they do that when they are scheduled for the 1st. Simply ignore them for a few days unless you want to pay early.

    Collections...The new all blue and all green will be shown here in a few days. Now that my thumb is healing I can do a lot more.......it sure slowed me down with just one hand!

    I will be doing another Autumn Colors collection with all new shades of beautiful reds, oranges, golds, greens, etc. Beautiful shades of Autumn. I am selecting those colors now.
    All the new collections will have great variations in them with a couple extreme variegated.

    I am selecting colors for a new Christmas Collection. I have done those in years past and they are popular. I would love your input.....I have done all reds, greens (medium to dark) and a couple golds....even a blue one year. What are your traditional Christmas favorites? The first two collections I dyed were the brighter reds and a cranberry red, and greens with variations in them. Holly, Ivy, evergreens.....
     The Victorian Christmas is always different....muted reds, cranberry, golds, and soft greens.

    My question is: what colors do you like for a traditional Christmas collection.....AND do you want just a set of 6 available or the regular box of 12? One time I did two skeins of the same nicest red in the box of 12....I thought others might like that so they could have extra of that red. Not sure if I will do that or just one skein of each.
    I would love to hear from you. You can post here...but an email to me is always the way to get a quick reply. nbelgian@aol.com

    Then I will dye an all red collection....my favorite of course.

    Next I think I will do an all browns from light to dark and lots of variegations.
    Maybe a set of Primitive Tans with cream, ivory, etc.? Or maybe just Rustic Primitives? What do you like for Primitives?

    I always appreciate it when you tell me what you are looking for in colors.

    I currently have the purple set, pinks, the Halloween Return to Sleepy Hollow with lots of oranges and the Bewitching spells gray set......in the spring I will do yellows.

    When I show the blue and green collections this coming week I will have a new give-away for a set so be sure to check back.

    Thanks for listening...have a great day!

    Would you like a job carding floss?

    Would you like to card floss? You need to live in Illinois,  Missouri or Indiana.....close to me here in Illinois ( I am 20 minutes from Saint Louis)....then we can talk.

    I need new helpers to card floss. I need responsible people who can commit to a time schedule and keep with it. I need someone who has no pets and is non-smoking. I need a reference from someone you have worked for if I don't already know you. Shall I go on?

    You receive hanks of floss. You count twenty yards, pull the ends together and trim them 1/4". Fold in half and put that through the card and tie with string on the back with a square knot. That takes me about 45 seconds but I am very fast. I pay .20 per card. That would be $12 per hour if you can do one a minute. Not bad for sitting at home, no travel expenses or wear and tear on a vehicle. You receive a check monthly. You would need to work just a few hours a day to card the floss I need right now.

    Are you interested? I need someone through December for now and maybe all of next year. After you do a sample bunch for me, and if all is done correctly, we can go from there. Send me an email if you are seriously interested. nbelgian@aol.com.

    UPDATE: I have three ladies who applied so far!
    POISITION IS FILLED WITH 3 LADIES HIRED. THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH FOR RESPONDING SO QUICKLY!

    Thank you for your time......I always appreciate my followers!

    Have a great week.

    Then we had two names drawn for the America the Beautiful Collection. Connie Bechtold and Becky Godby. Congratulations!

    Next we have the $50 Gift Certificate drawing. Remember I had said you don't need to be a club member to enter the drawings but you do need to be current in your payments. When you are finished with the club simply send me an email to be removed. The first name drawn was someone who had not paid the club invoices for several months and had to be disqualified. The second name drawn was Jacqueline Campbell. Congratulations!

    Last of all we have the Surprise Package of 30 skeins! The lucky name drawn was Roger Morales. Congratulations!

    Thank you for sharing my July celebration of Christmas and the 4th of July. It was lots of fun!

    I will have another give-away next week. All the gifts will be sent out this week. Be sure to send me your address if your name was drawn.

    I will be dyeing a new all blue collection and all green collection later this month. I will have lots of sets available and remember you can preorder with payment.
