Trucker -mouth suddenly appeared in all her glory, and it is astounding that I was not thrown out of the crowded Tom Hortons today. Mothers covered their children's ears; men in suits narrowed their eyes and gritted their teeth.
No one made a move toward my table, so I just carried on and attached new thread, perhaps a tad subdued, but otherwise not affected much by my own outburst. I never am. ; )
This is the piece. It is from the Tatter's Treasure Chest and it is a sweet pattern. In the thicker thread it looked bulky, but now it shows every single flaw in the #80.
The hankie edging does not seem to present so many problems, but I think the DMC is coarser and thicker than this:
I am finding it very challenging to work with this thread, for although I like it very much, it is so difficult to get the stitches the same size, the tension with the right amount of pressure, the picots consistent. Seems all the flaws glare big time! And, I am really trying my absolute best....@%*&*!
I suppose with a lot of practice it will become easier. My temper will have to be managed long before any improvement becomes discernible.
