I took down Christmas today. Kind of sad, but I'll be happy to see it again next year. Did chores today and worked on some computer stuff. All work and no play make Tonya a dull girl. But a box arrived in the mail today with my new Gilmore Girls--woohoo--so I'll probably vanish off the airwaves (cyberwaves?) for the next several days as I revel in my Girlness.
I did that whole bit on using perle cotton and embroidery floss and didn't even mention what type and size of needle to use. I know that "sharp on one end and with an eye that you can thread the floss thru" is probably not very helpful. I think (think think think) I use an embroidery needle size 5 but am not sure at all. I just have a little tin full of needles and really have no idea what they are. I think chenille needles are supposed to work as well. Somebody help me out here. Any ideas? Finn, what do you use for your perle cotton?
