Hearts stitch journal, 03 January 2018

I got up early today and it was still night. Unbelievably, despite the raging storm, there was a huge silver moon – truly silver, not white – visible behind the black silhouettes of the trees. I used a very difficult Kreinik thread, which is basically fine lametta, with eight strands – it’s not meant to be used like this, on its own, but is designed to mix with other threads, and it was very springy and had to be kept under tension throughout. But it has produced the really glittering effect that I was looking for – it looks different depending on which angle you view it from.
