The Bling Factor
My next project is a mini-sock for a young friend of mine. She was the recipient of the Gail Hendrix gingerbread cuckoo clock that I blog-stitched last year. She's also very feminine--a "Silver Girl"--so I decided to stitch a variation of my "Winter Wonder" mini-sock as her 2010 ornament.
One of the fun parts of this project will be trying out a new thread which I've had in my stash for some time but was waiting for the perfect opportunity--a silver Kreinik holographic metallic. I'm looking forward to exploring the properties of this thread as I combine it with other Kreinik metallic threads. I'm hoping that, by the time I finish, the "Bling Factor" will be very high!
