Things I Love Thursday

I love matching thread colours.  It's like playing I Spy.  It's a most enjoyable process.


charcoal / rusts

blondes / soft grey / a hint of smokey mauve


Then I start to 'paint'.

I call the the 'ugly phase'.  : )

I love the 'ugly phase' too.

I love the point where I am done the main threadpainting and move into the details.

I love how thread looks like grass.  I love how grass looks like thread.

: )  I will show you the finished version soon. : )

Happy Thursday!  I'm off to Regina / White City / Rouleau.  Looking forward to the fun!

You stole my line! I was going to say I love the "Ugly stage".
What a great teaching tool to have an ugly stage and one each of all the other stages and one of the finals and the beginning photo to show students. They say a picture is worth a thousand words.
Love your blog! You are so generous to share how tos.

That Gary green is just the color I was looking for yesterday! I don't have it so I had to blend.
Have fun on your trip.

Very interesting to so how you start - I have a hayfield filed away in my memory and hope it will get me started with threadpainting.
