Puddle Colors the John Waddell Way

Sue is working away on a chicken design using an overdyed thread for the background, and was kind enough to explain how John Waddell taught her to space the colors in the thread.

Here's John's website, just in case Sue's link to there breaks.

  1. Thanks again for the link...this was a fun piece to stitch and I especially love the finishing. My glasses are always smudge-proof, I need to stitch some other eyeglasses cases because now I try putting two pair (sunglasses and readers) in the same case.

    1. You are welcome. You know, I made a double glasses case once. I used two linings in a larger than normal case. Think two pillowcases as the linings, one with the opening facing left and the other with the opening facing right, both inside the case. I did use snaps to keep the pair of glasses I wasn't using safely inside.
