Acoustic Tuesday

I am taking the day off my computer and sewing machine, trying to wind down with some hand stitching. I am still trying out stuff on my test cloth and the supply of the day is silvery grey thread.

The craft store had run out of silver mouline floss, so I bought a light grey floss and silver machine embroidery thread. The one I have from Superior threads is way to slippery to stitch by hand. It is not the stitches themselves I worry about, but the starts and stops.


Fully armed with my Poppyprint needle case, my favourite silicone thimble, scissors and different threads I am ready to tune out my inner buzz with a few episodes of Big Bang Theory.

Aaaaah.
