The threads are size 20. The blue thread is Lizbeth Royal Blue and the white is DMC Cebelia. The Cebelia is a slight bit larger then the Lizbeth but they worked out o.k. I am positive I have a ball of white Lizbeth in size 20, but do you think I can find it? Oh, well, the ball of Cebelia has been in the drawer for a loooooonnnnnngggg time and really needs to get used up.
When I held the PIF several weeks ago, there was one gal who left me no way to get in touch with her. She finally contacted me just after holding the 2nd chance drawing. I have decided to send her a set of earrings in her choice of thread.
The thread is HDT size 40 RainForest, the beads and doodads are from FireMountainGems and the hooks are from eebeads
A neat trick I discovered tonight while trying to scan the earrings, There is often a focus problem when scanning an item that includes beads, but there is no good light tonight, so inspiration struck and I dug out a piece of fake fur. It cushioned the scanner lid and filled in the spaces around the beads and I think it worked pretty well. I will have to remember this.
The garden is all planted, Yeah, in between all the rain. We have had a lot of rain the past 10 days or so. And the crops are all in except a very wet spot or 2 where the tractor would have gotten stuck if farmguy had tried it.
