Hello people. Hope you're safe, warm, and dry.
Trying to visit new followers from Bloglovin or Google+ is frustrating. Am I doing something wrong? Are there no posts or photos to see? I was always left out in school and I'm beginning to feel that rejection again. Anyway, I did find another blog - Scattered Seed Samplers, loved her latest design, pictured here from her Etsy site.
So I ordered it along with Thread Heaven. Never heard of it before, or any other thread conditioner except for the beeswax that Miss Notforgotten recently posted about. I added it to the order and will test them both. The reviews of Thread Heaven are that it is .... well.... thread heaven. I don't want "nice" or "elegant" but it may help with my eyelet and satin stitches that are usually lumpy bumpy threads of tension. If it's a sort of silicone treatment, would it protect the threads from accepting dyes or stains when I age the piece? That would be nice for Santa's beard. We'll see. It makes the thread glide smoothly, lay flat, no tangling, perfect for all needlework, quilting, embroidery, yadda yadda.
My next project will be Anna Eliza Abe. It calls for Soie D'Alger but I would choose my own pinks anyway so I'm not bothering with a conversion. Already know I want 500, 501, 503, 950, 3064, 3772, 632 and whatever else I think will work. Not a fan of pink at all, but I like the series shown here, and I wish there was a little more intensity between them. You can barely see the difference.
We're taking Carole to her local doctor this afternoon and I have to stop at Rite-Aid and replace the M&M peanuts bag. I not only ate the peanut butter bag he bought for me, I ate the peanuts bag he bought for himself. Maybe that's why I hate pink - like pink on a pig - me.
Thanks for visiting.
