isn't it amazing...

what can be done with a plain old spool of mettler 50/3 cotton thread and a straw needle?
just imagine what can be done with a spool of silk machine thread you can buy at the local fabric store.  it's truly a wonder.  top was stitched on 40 count over two, second row was 40 count over one and the third piece is 45 count over two.  yep, that's a #11 straw needle.  i'm off to find a spool  of weeks dye works quilting cotton...that will be fun to work with and it's overdyed so i'll get some terrific color play :)
