My Favorite Colors in Anchor Floss.

Someone asked me to post my favorite Anchor Baby Colors.
These are some of my favorites
The Blue Featherstitchin is #120 and the Pink Rosebuds are #48 with either #1042 or #213 Green leaves.

The #1037 is a softer blue and the #271 is a softer pink.  Good for new baby clothes!

Here is my work table as I am packaging the floss.

I usually take the packs with me when I teach but had not gotten round to putting them on my blog.
This request was the incentive I needed.

For several different packs of my favorite floss go Here!

Reilly is really as unfriendly as he looks!  He's just old.
But he loves me.

A committee of one gets things done.

Gorgeous shades, you ever use DMC ?

I will occasionally use DMC but I began using Anchor years ago because the baby color shades are very slightly different (especially the greens) and I liked the Anchor best. DMC is a good floss too.

Thank you so much for the information Jeannie! Reilly looks as though he's supervising your packaging :) Absolutely adorable kitty.
