New Spring Floss Colors

Now that the floss give-away is over I thought I would show the rest of you the new spring set of floss I have added to my store inventory. It is available on ebay or direct from me.
Olde Marigold, Spring Green, Primrose Pink, Sweet Lilac and Forget Me Not Blue.

I will be adding a lot of new colors in the next couple months. I want to get a few more sampler patterns finished before I get back to the dye pot. It has been a nice break, let me tell you. But once more I will put on the rubber gloves and be dipping and dunking thousands of yards of floss as I do every spring.
I wish I could find someone who lives close to me to help put this on the cards. The other gal I had did not work out and it was too expensive shipping her boxes of floss and then returning them. If the postal rates keep going up we won't be able to ship anything to anyone. It is ridiculous these days. A small envelope with a few skeins of floss overseas is $9 to mail! Don't get me started.....
So it is Monday....the start of another new week.....and I guess I better get started! So much to do around here.

Thanks for stopping by....have a great week.


  1. Gorgeous colours!
    I hear you about the postal prices....absolutely ridiculous!

  2. What pretty spring colors you have created, Nancy!

  3. Love your new spring colors. I know too well the postage rates are high.
    love Annette

  4. Oh I wish I were near you, I'd happily help you put those lovely skeins of fiber on the cards. Your fibers are so beautiful! :) Happy Spring! :)

  5. Beautiful colors! I just love the green and pink. :-)

  6. Lovely colors! I too wish I lived close enough to help. I'm in central IL, and if I recall correctly, you are in southern IL?

    1. Yes, I am by St. Louis. Looking to relocate in a couple years....not sure where just yet.

  7. I knew I would love your spring colors! Can't wait to get them. Move near me and I'll gladly help you thread those cards!

  8. I have met so many great people through this business....I wish I had houses in a dozen different places to be closer to all of you!

  9. Oh, what lovely colors, Nancy!!! I know I will need to add them to my collection. Can hardly wait to see what else you come up with. I love your wide array of colors.
    I so wish we lived closer...I'd be there in a heartbeat to help you.

  10. Hi Nancy... I can't wait until the day that I can try one of your wonderful designs. I am dreaming & drooling with every post that you put out. Thanks for sharing them with us.

    In Kind Regards,

  11. Such pretty new colors. Gosh, I was just thinking how fun it would be to work with a floss hand-dyer. Too bad I'm so far north of you.

  12. Beautiful colors Nancy! I hope you find someone in your area to help you out. I hear you about the postage. It's really sad how overpriced it has become.

  13. Beautiful colors! You are so right about postage cost,it it nuts.Blessings,Jen

  14. As always gorgeous! Postage sucks, Royal Mail in the UK are raising prices again next month. So by any chance you live near a University? or college? or school? If so you can contact the student union/career service and see if you can find some eager person who for a small fee would do the cards for you.

    I would obviously love to help. But I am in the UK (so really really far away).
