If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....
me at yahoo dot com
this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Designs and Threads

I'm still trying out designs and learning to use all my new threads.  The tree design was sewn out using Floriani thread.....this thread is not my favorite because it usually breaks or frays quite often but I loosened the top tension and things went well from there.
The sun design was sewn out using Superior Threads - King Tut ELS Cotton and a topstitch 90/14 needle which was recommended on the actual spool. I mixed in a Robison-Anton Poly just because I like the look of using different threads when possible.
Each design measures roughly 4"2" and 3" square.  I am keeping each design in a notebook with notes about the threads used as well as types of needles and the tension info,  for future reference.  It's amazing how quickly I forget what I was doing, so notes help.

As always, I enjoy seeing your work. That sun really put a much-needed smile on my face this a.m.

Great idea to keep a notebook on what you used.

wouldn't it be great if all thread had needle suggestions on the spool!
