I am not used to working with such a thick thread and these two combined fibres are a bit bulky for my taste. I suppose this is a way of saying that I really do prefer the #80 threads after all, though I do complain about them on occasion!
However, though it is a wee bit rough in texture, and a bit thick, this piece is sturdy and has presence! And, it is now six inches across. This seems to indicate that it will be very large when Renata is through with it.
