Lovely Hand Spun Thread

I received the most wonderful surprise in the mail the other day. Monica from Just Ducky blog http://justducky48.blogspot.com sent me some of her beautiful silk floss that she hand spun herself! Monica, thank you, thank you!!
I have recently had the opportunity to work with Monica's lovely thread and was thrilled at how durable it was and how beautiful it looked in stitches. This color is peach and she has a whole palate full of other beautiful colors that she is selling in her Etsy shop. So please stop by Monica's blog and tell her hello. You will just love visiting her.

What a lovely thread - looking forward to seeing how you use it! Hmm peach colored? A really beautiful iris flower? Maybe a lovely old fashioned woman's face under a bonnet or big hat the peach being her skin tone? So many possibilities
