After starting the quilting and not liking it, I came across some new threads, embroidery threads. I think I first came across them on this blog, which sent me surfing for more info and then a place to buy. An etsy shop had them, but were charging
way more than I wanted to pay, unfortunately. Then I found some of the threads here, but not the 2-strand variety. Those I found here.
I think I did a damn good job picking threads to match my 2 background fabrics.
|Though they look the same, all 5 are slightly different shades.|
While taking pix this morning IN THE SUN!!, I had a 5 year old hand show the size of the spools.
not to be out done by a 2 year old, who unwrapped the threads also.
This is a close up of the area I had started quilting....some of the threads have already been picked out.
And just because, a feather drying out after a night of drenching rain.
