Pale Violets seam ribbon, ric rac, eyelet lace, buttons & Chenille

I have been working on a Pale Violet collection for spring and I am happy with the results. I put 2 shades of hand dyed ric rac, 2 shades of hand dyed 2" eyelet trim, 20 hand dyed buttons, 5 yards of cotton chenille and 10 yards of vintage seam ribbon tape in violet and soft green. I think this trim collection would compliment several projects and still have some left over. I will have a few new patterns in the coming weeks and use all of the soft colors I have been dyeing recently. I have recruited several ladies to help me stitch models and will be sending them their goodies shortly. There is just no way I can dye all of these trims, keep up with current orders on kits, frames and floss and stitch all of these by myself...even if I never stopped to sleep!

I am also working on a pale mint, antique rose collection,  and several others. I truly love working with all of these beautiful trims.....part of why I love my work!

Thanks for stopping by to peek at my newest goodies.

Have a great day!

Cant find anything this well dyed anywhere....Keep up the awesome work..I will be using quite a bit of my buttons, chenille and rickrack on some fun spring and summery designs!!! Take care, Faye

  3. I'll be here for the pale green and rose combo! Though each time you show a new one I instantly begin to wonder how I could use that color. What beautiful work.

  4. Loving this new collection, the colour is really pretty. I'm really looking forward to seeing your new designs and trim collections.
