I decided that the pink wasn't 'quite right' so have started with two other colours instead. This time the variegated is Pink Cocoa and the plain is called a.n.other. Actually it's a very old Coats thread that I may have bought when I was a kid!!! Who knows - who cares?
Just thought I'd better let you know that we're now up to 109 pairs of scissors in this year's TIAS. I've never had that many so early on. Thank you so much to all who have kept this old git happy.
