It's time for another Blog Hop. The question is now: Maybe it’s a particular type of fiber that always gives you a hassle. Or maybe it’s a least-favorite color of thread to use. That one thing that when you come across it in a design you just know the frogs are coming, or something that gives you twists and tangles.
The first thing that comes to my mine is LINEN! I tried so hard to work on linen especially since it is recommended for all of Nora Corbett's designs. However, I find it impossible to work on it - nothing ever lines up correctly, and I know that I've followed every tutorial I have seen and found on linen. I have given away all of the linen that I had on hand to someone else who could use it, and I now have an amazing stash of evenweaves: Jobelan, Lugana and Jazlyn. I can work on these without a problem and they are gorgeous.
Another item that makes me rip my hair out is Glissengloss or Kreinik. OK, well, any of the metallic threads and filaments. If it wasn't for Thread Heaven, I would not be able to use these fibers, and they really do jazz up a piece.
Then, there's my own personal frustration with DMC. I have no problem using any of the floss. I love the colors, and as long as I routinely allow them to unwind, I'm perfectly fine. My problem seems to be a total curse though. Despite the four boxes of floss - all of which are perfectly ordered, numbered and stored in numerical order, I am always missing one color that I need for a new project. What is that?! No matter how well I plan ahead and make purchases especially when the floss is on sale, I am always missing ONE. So irritating!
