Hand Dyed Thread "Blue Skies"

In this batch I tried to represent the shades of blue in the sky on a sunny day: light warm blue near the horizon to darker cool blue farther up. It's a new colorway, different from the other blue batches I've done before. Available in my Etsy shop.
Speaking of Etsy, 2020 will be my 13th year on Etsy. 

I remember the days before Internet, when I was living in a town much smaller than the one I'm currently in, where the only option for selling handmade items was consignment shops which usually charged a fee of 40% to 50% of the selling price of the item. So, from my perspective, Etsy works beautifully.

Gorgeous color! I have way more thread than I'll ever use, but I think I really need this one!

Gorgeous colour. Phew, that’s a heavy mark up, hooray for the internet.

....and if the consignment shop went out of business, you usually didn't get your items back. The shop and everything in it just 'disappeared.'

Beautiful blues!
