It all started when I heard about a new (to me) company based in France which specialise in silk embroidery threads - The Silk Mill, they have a wonderful website full of temptation - you have been warned! http://www.thesilkmill.com I purchased their country cottage garden pack, it is even better in real life :) I love the countryside and thatched cottages with their pretty gardens especially; while I live on the edge of a town and don't (yet!) have such a pretty garden, I do live in a thatched cottage and there are fields across the road!
I had a bag of DMC rayon and variegated threads I bought as a job lot and so pulled a few of those too
