But first, something I forgot to mention in my previous post. Thread is fickle. It can be difficult to get it to lay flat and keep from twisting, pulling into a tight mess. In the book that I pulled the design from last week (and this week), the author recommended separating the thread. Each thread comes with six strands. Separating the thread from each other helps to keep the thread flat and from twisting in on itself.
Now on to the project. The design I chose has a middle eastern flair to it and I decided to use three colors: a bluish purple, light purple, and lime green.
Next week, I'll be free-handing a design!
