While in New York City recently, I took a stroll to the garment district, where there is a big, old storewith all kinds of notions for sale. I bought a couple of balls of DMC Perle#8.
This is a very soft thread, (2-ply?) but I do enjoy it for small things as it is kind of plush and cushiony.
So, taking yet another Fikkert break and leaving the lilac cap for a bit, I picked a few colours and looked through the Russian book that I got from Elena a while ago.
I realize, again, how much I love to tat mignonette motifs - very relaxing pour moi. : )
