Another good reason!


Another good reason for trying other threads!!!  Right. Here's another of the squares!!! 

The top picture shows one done in ordinary cotton thread size 20 and the one below is done using Edda's Penny size 20. That's the one I showed you yesterday.

Now the third picture shows them together - one on top of the other and neither of these have been ironed so you can see how they are exactly the same size. Well, probably you don't think they are but I assure you that they are!!! I did fight them on the scanner as they wouldn't keep still!!!

So, here's the link to the pattern which can be worked with or without a SSSR. If worked with the SSSR (and hiding one colour) it can be worked in one 'hit'. Just my sorta pattern. I really can't be doing with hiding hundreds of ends.

  1. Interesting to see them together - the Penny square does look a little smaller, but I'll take your word for it that it's the same size! Is it hard to work with? - Does it cut into your fingers, being a synthetic? I really must not be tempted, I have Too Much Thread as it is.....

    1. Not hard to work with but a bit 'different'!!! It didn't cut into my fingers but then I'm a tough old cookie!!!

  2. I keep telling myself that I need to use up my thread stash before purchasing any more, but you're really tempting me with photos of motifs done up in Edda's threads!

  3. Once I saw it, I cannot see anything else... Look in each corner. There is a man with his arms in the air, wearing nothing, NOTHING, but a disgusting Speedo swim suit!

    I have a 3:00 appointment with my therapist.

  4. Thanks for sharing the pattern, Jane :-)
    I think I like this version Better than the earlier one -- this one has a nice rounded/curved effect as against the more pointed look of the original one. More like domes ....
    And I can see angels/puppet dolls in the corners !!!
