Abandonned edging


Not one of my best ideas for colours! This is an edging I started for a handkerchief. A plain white one. 

The thread is from Edda and you can see all about it here.

It's a delight to use and that wasn't why I cut the shuttles off. I just didn't like how it was turning out!!  I think it's a lack of contrast between the plain and the variegated or it could be simply that I didn't really like it for the white hanky.  Just me and my weird way of thinking.

So, I started something else with the same shuttles and I'll show you once it's finished.

  1. It's a pretty edging! I can see why you think it's too much of a contrast. There's no sense in carrying on if it doesn't look right to you!

  6. Poor little abandoned edging! The "over the top" color combo reminds me of children happily coloring with crayons, and it's got that kind of charm. I hope it finds a home.
