Color Thready 5 April
And today. I don't know how much difference you can see from one pic to the next, but the thready is coming along. I'm working with a limited palette - I only have about 25 different colors of embroidery floss. Previously when I've made these I've had a lot more than that.
While I'm working on it, it's very easy to get lost. It looks really cool close in. Pay no attention to the cat hair. I can't help getting that in there. I didn't measure before I started working the floss, but right now the piece is measuring 6.5" square-ish. It was at least an inch bigger than that before.
The back looks cool too. I just weave the ends in - no knots. I learned the hard way what a problem they can be everytime you sink your needle into them.
Patti asked what thread I use for quilting. Take a look at my thread tutorial on Quiltville.com - it may answer your questions. If you want to know about a particular quilt, just ask.
I was blissed out today watching Season 3 of Entourage. I get a real kick out of that show. And watched the first ep of The Shield Season 5. That show depresses the hell out of me, but boy what a cast and I can never figure out what is going to happen. Now if they just keep Dutch away from the cats, we'll be cool and I'll keep watching. I was refusing to watch after Season 3, but they pulled me in with Glenn Close.
Top Design really pulled its head out of you know where and is now really good. I highly recommend the last three episodes. You know how easy it is to catch repeats on Bravo, so go do it.
And Maggie, I went to the Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore last December (see post here) and loved it.
My sweetie has now made our plane reservations so if all goes smoothly I'll see him soon and then we'll have April in Paris. Isn't that a movie title or maybe a song?
