About the thread...

Thanks for all the great emails with questions concerning the Wonderfil thread I am using. Here's a close-up of the variegated "Mirage" I mentioned - it's the thread used to stitch the row of flowers in the centre section above. You can see it goes from a grey through middle shades of blue to navy. In the bobbin I am using a finer thread called "Deco Bob". A size 14 Cordonnet (topstitch) needle has worked well for all the decorative stitching I have done so far. What fun this is to try out different machine stitches and various threads.


  1. Not to mention the fun decorative stitches. Lovely Karen.

  2. you really must try their thread called "Spaghetti" with Decobob in the bobbin. You also require a needle with a large eye but the effect is wonderful!!
