I was home alone and had a half a pot left. I had forgotten and made a full pot last Friday. Sitting there staring at the pot...not too impressed about wasting it I decided to try it. I pulled some DMC floss colors I didn't think I would use. I made sure I could show you before and after. I let the threads soak for about an hour. I left the paper on the skeins. I don't know that I would use these threads on something that will get washed over and over again, but I love the look. I even tested the threads as for as threading needles and gliding in fabric. The threads passed with flying colors.
So for those girls that can't make it to the store every time you need a color---get creative.
I try to get this finished for Christmas. Fail. I tried to finish it for out of town company the third week in January. Fail. The moral is that sometimes you just need to finish things for the love of finishing them. Do it for yourself and no one else.... Here's my finish. A free pattern to be framed.
