square 5

i’ve been sewing with embroidery floss and sewing thread my whole life.  my handstitched class required that we use pearl cotton thread size 8 for some of our upcoming projects.  i was rather reluctant to go out and buy more thread when i have a box full of threads.  but the teacher promised that it is “beautiful and easy to work with, and doesn’t tangle like floss.” and she was right and i fell in love with the delightful effect the thread created.  (upper stitches are done with embroidery floss, lower stitches are done with with pearl cotton–the picture doesn’t really capture all the lovely qualities of the pearl cotton thread.)
