It is difficult to choose thread and fabric. So many possibilities. and it is what set the mood for the entire project. I have seen stitch projects which uses the same pattern but loot very different because of thread and fabric choice.
I have thought many thoughts about this – multi coloured, pink scale, two toned ?
I decided to have two different threads because to many colours maybe would make it too chaotic. I enden in the blue-green scale with variegated thread. One in silk and one in linen. They are dyed with the same colour palette they look nicely different as you can see on the picture. I bought the thread from the webshop Stef Francis
The fabric have 14 threads per cm and is, i I recall it correctly, linen. I bought it at a local shop “Broderi Moderne” which I am lucky to live near by.
