Well I didn't get a chance to to the last blog hop so I decided to join in on this one. It's about thread which you may not particularly like working with.
'Maybe it’s a particular type of fiber that always gives you a hassle. Or
maybe it’s a least-favorite color of thread to use. That one thing that
when you come across it in a design you just know the frogs are coming,
or something that gives you twists and tangles. I know for me it’s
Christmas Red DMC #666, I always joke that it has that color code for a
reason and it’s the devil!' - Loretta, Stitching the Night Away
Well I have to say the most difficult thread I have come across to work with was the DMC satin range, which I used for the jar lid in Lickle Ted. The effect is beautiful but that stuff was a NIGHTMARE. It kept slipping and sliding in the needle. I had to kept re-threading and evening out the ends.
I also find metallics can be fairly difficult to work with as they are difficult to thread and I absolutely hate having to re-thread metallics as the end fray and make it very difficult to get back through the eye of the needle.
I would love to know if anyone has any good ideas about how to deal with these threads, as I really want to stitch Ted again for myself but am not looking forward to dealing with those satins.
