Yesterday my DBIL called and said he had spools for me.
He is helping a friend cleaning out his house, and the friend has had an auction business for years - now he is in a care facility.
59 different colours - some a dozen spools, some only 1 or 2, most colours, something in between - all in all a big happy surprise :-)
The mailman brought the treasure today - Anni Downs' last book + wonderful fabrics, all bought from Quiltegården :-)
Thanks Siw - your service is so good!
The book is great - I want to make every single thing in this book - does not happen often :-)
