I thought that the coloured threads were detracting from the pattern, from the neutrals standing out. So I ripped out those stitches. And started again.
I think that two neutral coloured threads on the neutral areas and then the bright colours on the bright enhances the design and this makes me much happier. Happy is good.
I would write more today but I am frustrated - with Blogger. Mine isn't working. I have had to switch back to the old editor to even manage a post. And most of the buttons don't work on it, nor psell check (so forgive me), or just about anything else. Just another day where Blogger does something that makes things that worked perfectly yesterday not work today. I know it isn't just me. I have found other people posting on the Blogger forum about it. Has anything happened to your ability to post or edit on your blog?
