This is another “not a commercial”. I am not affiliated with Victoria Clayton floss in anyway. You spend $1,000 . . I get nothing. But, I love supporting an “idie dyer”. In this post, I talked more about her silk floss and a cost comparison.
Yesterday I decided to start a project using her silks. I knew I couldn’t get far on it and I need to finish Love Your Family but . . what could a few stitches hurt.
And Heaven and Nature Sing by Kathy Barrick is one that I have the conversions for. I had wanted to start it the other day and talked myself out of that. Kudos to me for that, right? 🙂
It looks kinda quick and easy and some crazy part of me thinks I could have it done by Christmas .. and that’s true I’m sure . . just not Christmas, 2021.
But I decided to start it just so I could either say “Hmmm .. maybe not so fast!” or “I love this floss!”
I 100% love this floss. I think I’ve only stitched with two other silks so there are several name brand silks I have not tried but the VC silks ae unbelievable smooth and flow through fabric like butter. Compared to cotton, the two silks I had previously used were smooth but they aren’t nearly as smooth as the VC silks.
I am not a perfect stitcher – far from it! I see pictures and I can tell their stitches look way better than mine but the few stitches I made last night with this floss look amazing.
That’s all the stitching I got done with it and I’ll have to put it away and get back on the project that has a deadline but, at least for now, this going to be my floss of choice when I need something other than DMC.
By the way, that is stitched on 40 count linen, 1 strand over 2 threads.
