natural twist

Letting the thread do what it will. I noticed last night that my new stitching on the face piece has interesting refractions of light, due to the way the tansy/madder perle cotton twists, or not, as it’s used.

natural twistI *do*  drop my needle and thread once in a while to let the thread “rest” and go back to its off the skein conformation, but i like the way this worked. Not intentional, just the way the fishbone stitch worked this time.

    • absolutely! i wasn’t trying , it just happened, and i quite like it–must have something to do with the way the needle is held as the second pass of the stitch is made.
