Well, more threadwork as I answered myself. Specifically, free motion. I want to explain how “to begin” with the bobbin play. The first thing I recommend to my students, is “define your space” IF … you want a specific placement for your thick threads. And because this was stamped with a design… I DID!
And I like this alot. It’s right up my alley, in the ‘perfectly imperfect’ — that wabi sabi stitching world!
It needs a bit more stitching, but in another color.
Time for some stem work…
Here are the stars of the “Thread Show” so far:
The threads: Superior Rainbows, with white Masterpiece on the bobbin. A bit of the Art Studio colors from Superior, too. All of these are 100% polyesters. They performed beautifully for me with a top tension setting of 1.0 – even slightly less, and the best part? Why I choose polyester? Well, in perfect timing, this info arrived in my email box, straight from the Superior newsletter:
Resistant to stretching and shrinking
Resistant to most chemicals
Crisp and resilient when wet or dry

I had a great time! (Thanks for asking!) and onto more contemplation with the rest of ‘what I’m a gonna do’ to this piece!
