about those dirty threads
Someone described my thread as having a luster. From what I can tell, DMC thread comes that way - at least the bright white that I start with does.
One of the interesting things I do with it is cut a length, (whatever you find manageable) and reverse the direction of one or more of the threads. It kind of "heathers" the rowdier colors, if you know what I mean.
I'm starting to plan a big piece - a map of an imaginary place. I'm still not sure I'll even do any hand stitching on it, but I'll have the colors I need, either way.
