I think I'm on a roll. Let's see how long I can keep this up. Hopefully I will get caught up with my backlog.

This thread is Excella Embroidery Silk. I used all the strands. The pattern is from the March 1962 Workbasket. The thread was sent to me by Nivedita Sen of Kolkata India.

I got this thread from Lily Morales of Yucaipa, CA. It is Anchor Cordonet Size 20. The pattern is the November 1954 Workbasket.

This next motif is actually an edging pattern from the January 1952 Workbasket. It started really curving on me, so I just let it keep going until it met itself back at the beginning. The thread came from Roberta Lawson of Queensland Australia. It is Cebelia Size 20, color 814.

Shirley Burger of Iowa City, Iowa gave me both the thread and the pattern for this heart. The pattern is designed by Marcella Alcantara and the thread is DMC Size 80 color 55

Yes, this thread is as thick as it looks. It is a size perle cotton made by Royal Coats and Clark. The color is 0006. The pattern is from the January 1961 Workbasket. It was given to me by Deborah Craig of Bernville Pennsylvania.

This is the last thread sent to me by Nivedita Sen. It is Modi Thread Size 40. The pattern is from the January 1966 Workbasket.

Well that catches me up with everything I scanned last August :-O! I have a few more scans to do to catch me up to date. Hopefully I can get them posted before next January.

Wow! Neat stuff there! I like the "circle" of curled edging, it could probably be done in green for a Christmas wreath. :)
