Embroidery - the finer points
I never knew this about threads until a gem of a lady joined our craft group and she has been heaven-sent for me. Did you know there was a right and wrong way to work your thread? Like the principle of going against the grain, if you like. If you work against the grain, you end up having a lot of tangles. To know which way "the grain" is, run your finger along the thread. One way is all smooth and the opposite is gritty, snarly. Now I begin each embroidery thread by "caressing" it!!! I am waiting for Hubby to make a comment. He hasn't noticed my strange goings-on as yet.
