But then I started looking at the picture and realized that there are an awful lot of big full-coverage areas, and I would imagine that the amount of thread needed will far exceed my supply and that of Miss Linda at the House of Stitches.
And then I had a great idea! Why not stitch the letters and some moteefs in two strands and then do all of the solid background areas in one strand?! This would make the moteefs stand out and look dimensional, the backgrounds receed, and I might not have to raid a small country for more threads!
So that's what I'm going to do. For now, however, I am fishing through stash and WiPs to get my basket together for the upcoming retreat. I have an idea in my head of what I want to play with, but that seems to be changing as the minutes tick by. The good news is that I am driving, so theoretically I could put my entire stash in my trunk and just work out of it as need be, but then there is the prospect of having to carry it all back upstairs next week when the retreat is over.
Another Futzingday has commenced, dearies! Do something fun and come tell me all about it!
