about those dirty threads

I pulled these from the river basket - not that I hoard the best for myself. Right.

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.
