When I went looking at Gay Ann Rogers' Heart Sale, I was most tempted by the Wedding Dress Heart 2. But it reminded me a bit of the Heart of Elizabeth.. I bought Heart of Elizabeth at least a year ago. I'm sure it is in a cabinet somewhere. I went looking for it and found it.
It had the congress cloth and beads with it but no threads. Surely in my stash I can find some threads that will do. I was looking for the perfect charcoal color. I got out my box of Vickie Clayton silks.
I found the perfect thread. It has a slight variation and the premium thread will work wonderfully with one ply on the congress cloth. But if I run out, I'm up a creek without a paddle. There isn't any way to get more as Vickie Clayton is no longer dyeing this thread. Do I risk it? Yes.
I found some stretcher bars that will do.
It was fun to work on something totally different. I love the charcoal thread. I worked on it all day.
