The program for the last CyberPointers meeting was called Fun with Fiber. Marilyn Owen designed and presented a scissors case and the idea was to experiment with fibers that you hadn't used before.
I don't use scissors cases, but it was an opportunity to try out a new thread I had just received. It is Dinky Dyes "Jumbuck", a new silk/wool blend that looked like it would work for Bargello on 18-count. It does! It is a lovely thread, hand dyed. So it is like an overdye, but very subtle. As you might expect (smile), I started with 4 shades of aqua/teal. It is quite nice to work with and I'm sure I will use it again.
I also used Waterlilies#197 Monsoon and an overdyed #12 Kreinik that I had laying around. I did not make it quite like Marilyn's pattern. Hers has a different pattern on the 2nd side, but I chose to just mirror image the Bargello.
Now, what will I do with this little project? I had thought I might fold it in half & make a bookmark, but it is just too thick. Any ideas? It is only2-1/4 x 4-3/4.
