A few days ago, I laughed when a friend told me she had trouble containing her urge to put glitter all over some artwork she hung in her nursery. Glitter? Please. I am NOT a girlie girl. I am immune to the pull of shiny baubles and glitzy bling. PUH-LEASE.
Only, apparently, I am not. The first sign was that I could barely contain myself at Joann's from buying EVERY pack of these clearance shiny threads. Focus, Liss. You have ONE project currently requiring such a thing. But, oh my, it IS pretty.
So, I used a bit of it to schmancy up Cal's birthday crown, cutting every piece with care to waste as little as possible. This is GOLD people. ;-) And, it was pretty fun. But then, oh then, I discovered one that was thin enough to thread so nicely right in my machine. Suddenly, I knew what Korana was talking about. I want to sew EVERYTHING from now on with shiny thread. EVERYTHING. I could barely contain myself not to keep scrolling designs all over the "good king" side of Walvy's crown.
