Just showing you a few more items I bought. There are some more wonderful silky threads and lots of beadwork fringing. I was also pleased to get ten boxes of DMC threads unopened and lots of lovely bunches of old velvet flowers. My favourite is the Theresa Dillmont "Encyclopedia of needlework" book. I have had a copy of this for many years and it is such a useful little gem. It has chapters on plain sewing, embroidery of all kinds, appliqué work, tapestry, knitting, crochet, tatting, macrame, netting, lace making and all kinds of needlework trimmings.

A treasure trove of goodies these sort of things I like for decorating your work and so on. Lovely. Julie.C
