Can you see the difference in the YLI (gold)? It lays better in the border and is thinner. Look how fat the little letters are. This next one is with the Au Ver à Soie (recommended thread) on the right and although the picture doesn't show well, it looks a little less bulky but I still don't think you can see the letters. I tried removing the Soie d'Alger and it's impossible. It's shredding and I can't get under it to pull out - not even the Lift 'n Snips are working. So now I have two different greens and will waste a lot of time removing what I can't remove. I'm a determined old fart. I'm going to do a few stitches with one strand of DMC to see how thick it looks for future 36 count silk thread projects that I'll never do. If I like it, is it wrong to mix silk and cotton? Do I care? So tell me, can you look at a framed sampler and tell if it's silk or not? You can?
What?I decided to take a break so Bud and I had a donut. I fried mine. Bud #2 was not happy. She's the prettiest of the bunch with her silver coat.
It's too bad I don't like the taste of alcohol. A glass of wine might do me good. But another two Advil and the sound of a second donut sizzling in that hot pan will work too.
