Sea Shells and Thread

These are all the sea shells we found at the beach or in the sea, like the big one. The beauty of the gulf is the crystal clear water, so I stepped on the big shell, we made sure it was empty and picked it up. The sand dollar washed up on shore, as did the lettered olives, and the other small spiral shells.

Now for the thread, do I need more thread, no, but I love the colors, all colors. When this package came yesterday from Paraguay, I was a kid in a candy store. Orla helped me remove the packaging and then had fun selling them to me.
Paraguay Yarns is my source for Clea Cotton. Enjoy!

Isn't looking for shells so fun! Just like rock hunting. :)

Love the colors that you "bought" from Orla. Very pretty.

Those shells are lovely - especially the sand dollar. I used to collect those at the beaches in Southern California...maybe I should hurry up and go to the gulf before it all gets blackened from the oil spill - I just want to cry every time I think about that! What a horrible thing to have happened!

I love all those great colors. I can wait to see what beautiful things you create.

Seems like a fun trip to the beach, too.

oh darn, I could have brought thread for you from Brazil... I didn't even think of it!
If you ever need, let me know, I can have my sister send it to me.
