actual stitching!

It's nice to fool with my own Dirty Thread. As you can see, I've kept some of the tastier ones for myself.

This one seems a perfect fit for this project. But what did I say about going slow?  After the first length was used up, I got hasty and tried to use all six ply + two strands of bright blue rayon (wayward shit on a good day). Snag city, each stitch a pain in the ass.

So back to splitting the six and doubling each half, adding in whatever silly business I can cram through the needle's eye as the mood moves me.

and don't forget a slash of Thread Magic. Strange and wonderful stuff.

LOVE. i still use just a single strand. one of six. And then as many back an forth stitches as is needed to create the thing i need.
I am so Good with this. It is so smooth and perfect an effect for
whatever it is...leaf, bark, bit of magical essesce
i love that you are stitching with them, however impatiently

I read that Grace used a single thread and so I tried it-- liked it. I also enjoy two threads and even three but with three threads means things bunched up. And I--once used one thread this way and a second the opposite way to "get more magic".

But I am like Grace--not wanting the magic thread to get used up-- as it's one of a kind.

Mighty beautiful color! The bane of my existence is threading needles (don't ask why-just IS).

TGIF even tho I only went back to work just yesterday.

My Swedish ivy is loving being back outside. I need to get some small pots to start a squad of offspring for gift giving. On sale at ...

Play it again Sam.
