Having outlined one side of the large scissor print, I've done the needles and the I started on the reels of thread - the ends are going to be loose. Having done just two I realised that the part outline is not strong enough and needs to be darker with more depth. So it needs a perle cotton but as I don't have the right deep colour in perle I am going to do my very favourite thing - make a cord!! using the perle I do have and the deeper metallic and cotton thread I am creating yards and yards of the right colour, right thickness yarn and YES I love it - I am cord making - what could make me happier???
Here I have laid the darker against some outlining to see if it will work.
