I warned Karen to watch out for curved cross-hatching. I was just a-playing along loving the curves. I got to the end of the row, looked back at that 1st block where I'd done the curved crosshatch and it looked dusty! Hmmmmmm, how'd that happen? The backing for this quilt is brown and the front uses a dark ruby, a pink and a beige. So I'd been stitching with a brown thread that matched the back. Where all that thread was in the curved x-hatching, that's where it looked dusty. Guess it was the brown on the red.. What's the remedy? Frog-stitch! NOrmally I slip the ripper through every 3rd or 4th stitch, then pull the thread out from the other side. But --- look here http://youtu.be/l6jaVst0zqw
Learned some other stuff this last week, too. Had a memory from school days brought to mind & I learned that I can still feel like a giddy school kid even though I'm rather "long of tooth" as they used to say.
