Thread Candy

Friday, December 9, 2011

Mmmmm…. Beautiful, delectable, delicious and tempting.

Selecting colors for a project and working with DMC Needlework Threads is definitely like working in a candy shop.

There’s just so much variety, color and temptation – stitching with DMC’s threads is like having¬†sugarplums dancing through my fingers.

To pay homage to Clement Clarke Moore’s famous Twas the Night Before Christmas poem, DMC is posting this Friday Freebie featuring candy-colored snowman and angel ornaments.

Work the charted designs in DMC Embroidery Floss or lustrous, sparkling DMC Light Effects Floss in basic cross stitch.

Looking to save time?  Try working the designs in DMC Size 8 Pearl Cotton balls using the half cross stitch technique.

…and if you’re inclined to decorate your workroom for the Holidays, display your threads like we did in the photo above right, using glass candy jars filled with an assortment of tasty thread colors!
