Liz Metallic Mocha Brown

I am enjoying trying out these new metallic threads. Today's offering is Mocha Brown. I never would have thought of using brown for a metallic thread.

It looks pretty good! Of course I used another pretty shuttle from LaCossette! 😄

I finally warped my new Gilmore Mini Wave Loom. After I finished, I told Mom that I couldn't believe I made such a big deal out of it. Now that I know what I'm doing, the whole process will go much more smoothly next time.

The rest of the day was spent doing laundry and cleaning up a sewing machine I found on eBay. It had quite a bit of sticky tape residue, and I'm still trying to get it all off. There are lots of scratches and nicks in it, but I'm having fun. I haven't tried running it yet. That will happen after I finish cleaning it. I sure hope it works!


  1. That's quite a range of metallic threads! Good luck with the sewing machine. What are you using to get the stickiness off?

    1. I've been using Goo Gone. It's worked well on the metal part of the casing, but there's one plastic piece about 2" square that is covered in gunk and won't come clean. I'll play some more today.

  2. Beautiful ice drop and thread, good luck with the sewing machine I hope it works after all your hard work.

  3. I had no idea metallic thread came in so many colours. I hope it doesn't hurt your fingers too much tatting with it. The mini loom is so cute. Have fun and please show us what you make with it.


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
