Instead

I went to the material shop in town to buy some white sewing thread. They didn't have any, much to my consternation. I picked up some off-white thread and then had a look around. I found some invisible thread. Hmmm, I've been interested in trying that, since I read about it on Jane Eborall's blog. I won't have to worry whether to match the tatting or the material when I'm sewing on motifs. I bought another zip for my stash and two lengths of material to make blouses. As Jack said, I did pretty well, considering that the shop didn't have what I was looking for!

  4. If you have a kid in Scouts, invisible thread is the only way to go! It can be a bit of a pain to use by hand. If you keep the length short, it is easier to use and there is less tangling.
    Love to see the blouses when they are done.
