I've lost ...
my stitching mojo! There I was getting on fine with the stitching of my forthcoming exchanges. I had just finished the piece I had chosen to do for the HOE
freebie chart exchange and decided to 'finish' it today. The fabric was a bit creased so I placed it face down on a white towel and, as usual, ironed it with a damp cloth and to my horror the gold of the Glorianna (Blue Grass) silk thread bled into the fabric! I am devastated as it is such a pretty piece. I ran it under cold water as suggested on the label and although some of the bleed has come out, the 'glow' of the thread has gone. I then decided to wash it again with a mild soap but I have now decided to re-stitch in a different thread; I might even use another pattern; I may never stitch again (not really) but that's how I feel at the moment!
So no photos to show you - just me having a moan - sorry.
Thanks for visiting
