A good evocation here!. When I was young I was taught to embroider. These threads that teach us today were what I used for my embroidered ... The palette of these threads is fabulous. The combination you have chosen today is extraordinary! A hug, Adela

Curly: beautiful picture!! I can not believe that this type of thread and the presentation exist there. as a child I used to embroider these threads, it brings back very fond memories as it was my grandmother who taught me this.
