Thread Bare



Got the alarm permit from the Sheriff’s office, went back to Needlepoint Land, and started putting up threads. This is #5 perle cotton from DMC. It’s been awhile since I cracked open a box and I had forgotten how bright and almost opalescent they are when they are brand new.

I was probably jumping the gun by putting them up because I have to drill some holes into the framing behind the pegboard — but it was so gloomy outside today in south Florida that I just wanted to look at some color!

More to come… .
