Guess what? I actually did an entire column this past week? Can you believe it? I know I can’t. Before I went to bed, I put in a little stitch time (I missed it!) and soon finished another column.
Here it is:
When working on this new column I’m starting to use some “shiny” thread. I already used a gold color on the hand.
I did try to take a picture of the other color, but it’s far to light to show. You couldn’t tell the difference in the pictures. The gold does stand out though. The other color you can see sparkle only at certain angles.
I do find them difficult to put them in the eye of my needle, as well. They do split and break in different directions too. So, I try to stitch as much as I can in a small space. A teeny cheat for myself. If I didn’t these threads might drive me mad. Anyone out there have any hints/tips with using threads like these? I might just be too rough with them.
This is my last busy week at work. I can’t wait to have some time to stitch more. I’ve been substituting my cross stitch with meditation. I find myself, after work, looking to center myself and the meditation does just that. Who am I kidding, I’m addicted to meditating haha. Is that possible? I get super happy when I know I’m going to have quiet time to do it. Then again…I’ve got lots to make me happy as of late. Oh gosh, what am I even hinting at on that one. I wonder. (^_^).
Alright guys have a good week. Make sure to get some you time in your daily routine.
