Variegated Embroidery Floss

I made a small sampler (by small, I mean REAL small) to show people how my variegated embroidery floss looks as a cross stitch or as an embroidery stitch. I just used a few simple stitches, chain stitch, feather stitch and cross stitch. I then posted this to my ArtFire blog. I plan on posting short articles over there dealing mainly with my hand dyed items and possibly a series on the different types of silks. Still pondering over that idea. Anyway, feel free to wander over and check it out if you are curious how they look stitched up. I just realized the other day that I have shown lots of my stitch work here with my threads but since I don't cross stitch anymore people haven't seen how pretty it looks with that method.

  1. Great idea! I found that these threads show their beauty in satin stitch most obviously.

  2. Oh, you are so right Eva, Thank you! I should have done a bit of that too. Ah well.
