Hand Dyed Rayon Embroidery Threads

Below are photos of the hand dyed Colours of the 4 ply Rayon Threads I have in my shop at the moment.  They work like  stranded cotton and can be used in any thickness from fine (1 strand) to thick (4 strands)
They come in 15 metre lengths and are $5.50 NZ
Payment can be by paypal or Internet Banking in NZ
Email me at jangibb@slingshot.co.nz if you are interested
 








These last 2 photos show some embroidery I did on Silk Paper
In the top one I explored all different sorts of Chain Stitches and used a variety of threads.  I was surprised how many chain stitch variations there are
The second piece is similar but the stitch explored was Blanket or Spaced Buttonhole Stitch. 
Once again there are many variations.
These exercises are a great way to learn new stitches
The idea also is to colour the Silk Paper in, with the stitches following the colours in the paper itself.
I trust you will enjoy doing this in your own style if you decide to try this idea
