- Doomed

Retrospective (5/28/2016)

Patch #146 ...



is a patch of muslin dyed last year with windfall lichen ...


The stitching was done with one of the new flosses below, which perfectly matched the original color of the lichen, although sadly my camera failed to capture its subtlety.

Original Post

Montana Joe posted a basket-full of floss, which led me to ask where he got it.

That in turn led me to a needlework store in Austin which I've been meaning to explore. In truth, I hadn't yet done so as I knew what would happen.

"If I win the lottery, I'll just take one of each," I muttered to myself.

But I haven't won the lottery (yet), so I stuck to my self-imposed limit of ten ...


Until the next time ...

I'm thinking they're worth the premium price just for the sheer joy of using them
