I was surprised the other day when I got tracking for a package I didn't remember having ordered. A while ago (the end of June?) Mary Corbet talked about some metallic threads that were easier to work with. They were available from Needle in a Haystack. I ordered some. It took a while because some of the threads were out of stock. I had totally forgotten about them until I got the tracking number. I got them this week.
They look like lovely threads.
There are several different sizes of braids, from 4 to 32.
I haven't tried them out yet so I don't know how they are to work with but the colors are very nice.
Speaking of metallic threads, I found the metallic braid from the Amy Mitten kit that I had misplaced. So I was able to finish up the rose with stumpwork petals. Now I can start the next step which is the top row. I need to iron (carefully!) the petals so they lay nicely.
We are expecting rain today but I was able to walk outside this morning. It was 71 degrees. Warm!
