This is a comparison on the new thread versus the size 30 I had at home. I was practicing the 'shell' stitch and while I think it is cute, it's very time consuming to do. That small strip of white thread is only 5 inches long!
I recieved in the mail yesterday a package from Heather with a skein of lovely HDT and her new resin 3 hole shuttles! Two days before the big B-day too! So forget the whole, 'I'm putting up my shuttles for two weeks' thing I was saying. I have to try these out. But that's a post for another day.
