QUERY OF THE WEEK
Over the weekend, I was on a quest to find photos of how stitchers store their hand-dyed, over-dyed, and/or silk threads. You know what? There is NOT much out there. I guess I was expecting to find something and think, "Oh! That would work great for me."
I did a post a while back that shows I how store all my floss: HERE. As you can see, my hand-dyed floss is stored in ziploc bags. It works okay, but doesn't make it easy if I'm looking for a particular color by name.
How do you store your hand-dyed floss?
The moon is shining and the cat is on the roof singing!
I was able to get a big chunk of stitching out of the way this week. I'm hoping the rest of it... the border, alphabet and flowers on the left side... goes quickly.
Again, I swapped colors... This time for the moon. I didn't have the called for GAST that contained hues of yellow and orange. I didn't really care for the orange streaks through the moon, anyway. For my moon, I used Six Strand Sweets Toffee, a DMC brown, and a DMC pale yellow. What do you think?
Two weeks ago, I was on a mission to score some balls of yarn to try my hand at some cute crocheted owls. I didn't find yard, but did come home with those awesome spice carousels! I digress. Last week, I stopped by a thrift store in another city to see if they had yarn. I hit a mother lode! I'm gonna have to go back because I didn't get white and I need white.
Until Next Time,
