Welcome Girls

It's been lovely having our stitch-a-long grow in numbers - welcome to all the new girls..
I have been blown away by the variety of different fabrics everyone has chosen, not to mention the assortment of threads being used too.   I am persisting with the variegated dmc threads I have had sitting around for years - trying desperately not to chop them up into varying shades..
I have completed four more blocks so far - I don't mind being ahead a little so when things get busier especially as we near Christmas, I will not fall too far behind..
I will trim them down later..
Well that's all for me today..  keep up the great work girls...
xx

Your fabric & threads are lovely.

I will tell you my experience & knowledge with the variegated DMC threads... the ones that are in the low 100s, were the first variegated threads that DMC had in their range; and as per your experience, they don't change colour enough to make them useful & lovely for small designs.
DMC have added new colours over the years & the newer variegated threads are so much better, only a few inches of colour before they change. These are 4-digit thread numbers, starting with either a 3 or a 4.
I have chopped up the DMC115 in the past, to use for Christmas stitcheries; it wasted so much thread & was just so annoying... SO, if you want a good variegated DMC, take a look at the ones with the higher thread numbers!
(I hope all that made sense!)
