And WHERE is the notebook...

for this 10 year old Russian drawn thread sampler? This DEFINITELY is a WISP -- a Work in Slow Progress, term coined by Sharon B from
In A Minute Ago

Sharon, these photos are for you! Talk about Slow Cloth .... could I do this again today? I doubt it.

These are some of the drawn threads, saved to use again for basting, sewing up, or even sewing. Note cotton thread with "25 kopek" stamp. In the class we used Russian 42 count linen and DMC embroidery thread, or floss from India.
