My dear, lovely friend Ariana gave me these spools of silken thread as a winter solstice gift. I found them this week while I was dusting (read: clearing off heaps of tools and materials) my craft table.
What makes them triple special is that, two years ago, I saw crates of these while I was at the Bouckville Antique fair. I almost bought a handful, but then I went to find some water and the bathroom, and the next thing I knew I was lost in the old washing buckets tent. That is just how it goes at antique fairs. I did think about those bright spools of thread on the drive home, though, and I wished I had bought a few.
Thank you, Ariana, for just knowing. I imagine I’ll be using this fiber for many, many moons.
