I posted last time about the woman who dyes her own thread. As I continue to look over her work she takes several of the dmc colors and combines them into one. Her work is fantastic and you really need to check her out. I also found her facebook page and some of the posts are of work done with her threads.
Definitely worth a look see. here is the link http://www.facebook.com/pages/Hand-made-by-Nina/113022098731511
