Joining in ...

... I am finally organised enough, to share that I am also joining in the stitching fun. Some of my bits only arrived in the mail yesterday!

I'm going to be using Pom Pom de Paris by French General - the cream one on the left is my inner border fabric, am going to add a FG red and cream dot ... think I may use a pink floral for the outer border ... will make that choice as I stitch.


For the stitchery I am using Cosmo Multi-thread... it is a 2 strand thread on a reel ...  no splitting thread, just cut and thread on my needle ... should stitch exactly like stranded Cosmo thread.   After I have stitched block, I will share what I think of multi-thread.

Happy stitching, Perri

I'm using the Cosmo Multi-thread as well, I like it so far, much easier than splitting thread as you have found out.
