#146   Happy New Year Sampler!

 This sampler celebrates the start of a new year. From the top of the sampler, where explosions of fireworks shimmer over the water near the small town, to the band playing great dance music, to the dancers under a ceiling of balloons ready for midnight, to a cityscape where neon lights and fireworks herald another year, to Old Father Time and Baby New Year as the sands of time run out on the old year; all these elements are depicted in this cute sampler, and can hang in pride of place throughout the holidays even into January! I always loved New Years eve... as a child my parents would leave for their dance, looking excited and beautifully dressed, and when I was an adult I did the same thing. Now I enjoy more sedate parties, but I still go out and spend a few hours having a gourmet dinner with a gathering of likeminded people, wishing each other a Happy New Year at 9 instead of midnight! Wishing you many more New Years.. enjoy stitching this Happy New Year sampler on Misty Blue or other coloured linen, with silks in bright colours ! Frame or fashion into a bellpull and hang this in your hall this Holiday season and beyond! - Thea

Sorting The Threads in your Accessory Pack: Remember to sort in daylight near a window, not under artificial light indoors, as the colours change with the colour of the lightbulbs we use. Each floss has a different number of strands in each thread length. This helps you differentiate the different colours in your pack. Needlepoint Inc. silk floss has 8 strands per length The Kreinik Mori has 6 strands per length The Gloriana Overdyed Silk has 12 thin strands per length. Dinky Dyes has 6 strands per length. FYI: We noticed that some colours have been divided into two lengths. This can happen if a colour requires 1.5 yards. Our kitmaker might include one 1 yard length and one 0.5 yard length, so don't get confused if one colour has more than one length of thread. We hope this extra information will help you sort your threads more easily!
