Fell in love with this "one colour" pattern, new this week at EmbLibrary. Just got some new varigated threads from Valdani Thread Company. It's a 35wt, so a "thick" thread - gives great texture. Tested 2 different colours. Love them both for different reason/qualities.

Nice to see the two, reminds us to experiment a bit with colour. These look both great, but oh so different.

Thanks you for sharing both of the design stitched out with each of the colors - they work very well. How expensive is this thread? Do you have the site?

I find it amusing to see how "lucky" some colours end up seemingly in the correct place to shade, or detail. I love watching varigated stitch out more than regular thread...

Oh wow... funny how thread colors can create such a complete design. Nice job.

Thank you very much. The thread is a bit tricky to work with (more likely to break, even on the slowest machine speed setting) but it's worth it I think.

Thank you. Their colour selection is incredible! Some are more obvious changes, others are more subtle. It was tough narrowing my order down!
