An Egg with Memory Thread! (DMC)

A fun surprise this morning - I received this picture from Liz Saylor at DMC. She found the egg, which I had discontinued for painting several years ago, on the web page at The French Knot in Fort Worth, and asked if she might use it - surprised me! I tried to talk her into using something else, but she insisted - and I am amazed at what she did with it.
It's worked with DMC Satin Floss and the Memory Thread, in a most imaginative way. Great stitching! The Satin Floss has a high shine, and is actually very easy to use, as when I use it, I double two plies for 18 mesh, (to make a 4 ply thread) and make a slip knot against the eye of the needle.
Anyway, she's taking it to market this coming weekend at Long Beach - and will show new Satin Floss colors and also the Memory Thread - which I need to try out myself. It adds some fabulous dimension to this design, I think.
Liz says for anyone who is attending this market, their fun and beautiful products (and my egg) can be seen in Booth #1754. I think she is handing out patterns for working it - charted things.

Hi Judy - Thanks for your compliments. I could not have done it without your help. The entire egg is stitched in DMC Satin Floss - most of the colors in the new set of 24 Satin Floss colors DMC is introducing this month.
Thanks again,
Liz

A very unusual Easter egg, but a delight to see. I agree that Liz did a super job on this.
