1/9



The first finished tapestry from the collages in the last post. It's 20x20cm - quite big for me - and I'm somewhat daunted by the prospect of the next 8...

Incidentally, if anyone knows where I could buy Drima extra strong thread I'd be really grateful if they could let me know. Drima were bought by Coats and now the thread is really hard to find. I'm sure there must still be some out there though. It's cotton covered polyester I think and is strong as old boots. Thanks!

Thank you Helen!

The first piece certainly looks good - it's lovely to see it s/s.
I'm afraid to say that I do not know where you can find Drima except perhaps on ebay. It's awful when a favourite disappears.

Oh, that is SO beautiful! Well done :)

Thanks all! Thanks also to those people who emailed me to say that Drima thread is available via Coats. Sadly it's not true - their website is out of date...
