A picture, a moment

Work has picked up as it does at this time of year, but I am making creeping progress with Leaves, little by little.  I wasn't sure how which colour thread to quilt the leaves before the obvious occurred to me (duh) - these are Oakshott cottons from the Rubies range, and all shot with red.  So I am using the same red Aurifil 28 I used on Big Red Triangles and Walk Don't Walk and didn't have to buy any thread.  Aesthetics with economy, yay!  That spool is going a long way.

It's often quite difficult to catch the iridescent quality of Oakshotts in a photograph, but I like this one.



Linking up with Martha!

  7. Hi Catherine,
    Yes, in that photo I can see the luster very well. I am in the process of crocheting a (huge) afghan for my brother's 2013 Christmas present. Yes, 2013. Sigh. But, anyway, it's inexpensive acrylic yarn, but, it, too has the most wonderful luster.
    I am most jealous of you ability to stitch right down the center of the leaf without wobble. Anyway, ya know that Leaves is just gonna shine! :) m

  14. I have never seen oakshott in the flesh so to speak. The iridescence of the fabric really comes across in your photos.
    I can't wait to see more.
