Q :Do you do anything special to your threads before putting them throughyour fabric to make them more manageable?
A : To most threads, no. The only thread I do anything to is rayon, before I thread the needle I dip my fingers in water and run the thread through my damp fingers. This tends to tame the thread a little and work those kinks out.
I'm still plugging away at my first model, so no interesting stitching news to pass on.
Here's today's photo, the moon through the bare branches of one of my trees at dusk.
