I was looking for a really strong thread the other day, and remembered that I had stashed away a whole bunch of antique and vintage French threads a couple of years ago. I was pretty sure that there was some strong linen thread amongst that lot. Oh, it was so lovely opening up the box again and going through all the different threads in there. I love the old labels on the pure linen threads. The big hanks of cotton threads in white and creams are so tactile, I have to admit, I had to play with them for a little while. There were bunches of vintage embroidery cottons as well. But I had better let you see for yourself, hadn't I?
Happy White Wednesday! I am off to check out all the wonderful white posts at the FADED CHARM blog HERE.
