    experiment with pearl cotton machine

    i wanted thicker thread to make a vine so i filled a bobbin with pearl cotton 8 not quite full and used it in the top
    lowered tension used a metalic needle and sewed very slow as you can see worked great!

    nice! Our guild had a class on using all kinds of threads in the sewing machine. I didn't get to attend but it's neat to think about, since I never do think about using different things. Love love love your sheep!

    For some reason, the picture doesn't come up for me. I would love to see it.
