Gggrrr


I have thoroughly been enjoying stitching up this gorgeous pattern gifted to me by my lovely friend Maria.


I got them both trimmed up and ready to sew borders on.


I love this fabric that i put with it,i think i got it from one of spotlight sales.


 I was loving how they were coming together


  And then buggar water come out of the iron and i had thought that i had washed these threads but i must've not as the dye in the thread started running .


Buggar you would think that i had learnt my lesson by now with these threads,i soaked and soaked but the dye wouldnt come out,so back to the drawing board with Rudolph.


 Just as well i enjoyed stitching these,better go and trace out Rudolph again,lol.

Hope your day is a good one.
Cheers Shez xx

  1. The bleeding threads are not noticeable from the other side of the world. I daresay that's no compensation when it's all you see.

  2. You need to get some Metapex Shez. Soak your embroidery in it and your threads and you should get rid of the excess dye. xx

  7. They look great. Shame you are having troubles with the thread. I agree with Alcea Rosea 31 the bleed is barely noticeable. Hugs,xx

  10. The designs are lovely Shez, irons have a mind of their own sometimes.

  19. I know how frustrating this can feel, Shez, it happened to me as well :((
    But they're so lovely and you made them beautifully... OK, just a little effort and you'll get it right again :D

    In stitches,

  22. Beautiful stitching...and a reminder of what can happen. What a disappointment for you!

  23. I wonder why red seems to be the colour that runs. I also wonder if you were to keep flooding the piece with cold water if maybe the 'run' would wash away? Might be worth trying.

  24. sew annoying... Lucky I use a dry iron..

  25. Beautiful stitching and good luck with fixing the bleed. There must be something you can do to save it. I like that saying...seems to speak to me as I have an unquiet mind for sure.

  26. Buggar, alright! There is nothing more annoying. I washed some Christmas table runners only to have colours run. I put them through the wash again with colour catchers and it worked. Maybe try that if you haven’t already. Good luck.

  27. Shows how much I know - I didn't know you had to wash the thread FIRST? I guess it makes sense though. I hope you're able to salvage all that hard work!
