So Thread Weight Does Matter!

I was so proud of the lovely threads I purchased in the last post.  Not at all suitable for what I am planing tho.  Hmmmmm..... time to bust out the stash that I am hiding in a box under the shelf in my stashroom.

A few months ago in a complete buying frenzy I ordered a huge box of 4ply cottons from Jimmy Beans in America.  I couldn't decide on a colour so I just said - What the heck - and ordered one of each.  It was one of the best boxes I got to open last year, hands down.

So I had a quick play last night and this is what I came up with.  I think it's a lovely spread of colours and this weekend - long weekend at that, I shall have an experiment with this chosen few.
