How Do You Like My New Threads?
They glow! I already had the white skein and the DMC spool. Combined together they glow pretty well in the dark. My new threads include several different types from Kreinik - grape and watermelon 1/16 ribbon, tangerine 1/8 inch ribbon, lime and lemon #8 fine braid and tangerine and blueberry blending filament.
Working on another of my Midnight Fantasy Garden blocks. I crocheted the white embroidery floss (6 strands - 7 hook) and the tangerine and grape 1/16 inch ribbon into flowers. It was not difficult to work with and the ribbon seemed like it was made of plastic. The fairy wings have some stem stitched white floss and stem stitched lime braid as well as some violet silk (or was it rayon) stitching like is on her dress and then all is outlined with lime backstitch. I used a glow in the dark fabric pen to color in fairy skin.
Haven't used the blending filaments or the 1/8 ribbon yet but stay tuned...it's a work in process.
