Happy Dance: The Long and the Short Of It

What a fun, yet challenging, beginner soft shading project! I really enjoyed this. At first, I had problems keeping the floche twisted correctly, but it was so nice to work with once I remembered to keep an eye on the twist. The thread has a very smooth finish, so it has a wonderful sheen, particularly when used in satin stitch. I'm going to have to find ways to use floche in other projects!

Thank you to Marion Scoular for an enjoyable class and a quick, yet effective, teaching project!

That is absolutely lovely and those colors are wonderful together.

Be very careful that I don't sneak in your house at night and steal it (big grin)
