Old SBQ December 12, 2007


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.

Thanks so much for the timely tip regarding stitching with rayon.... now to just remember it. I'm hoping in the next couple weeks to be working on the 'L' on Love with a Capital L. It is a blending of rayon with another cotton blend. I can't for the life of me remember the floss name right now. 4 o'clock hour might just have something to do with it!

Love the photo!
