P.S. Your thread packs on the ArtFire site are awesome. I ordered one last night, and was hardpressed to choose just one – they’re all gorgeous.
I like this one very much – I use a similar stitch and insert beads in the spaces to create background patches for my needlepoint crazy quilt. I’m going to try this – great effect. thanks!
