Well I spent an evening with the vintage floss and just about drove myself crazy. The knots were just too much and made it impossible to untangle. So I salvaged maybe 5 colors and the rest I had to throw out. Sad face.
On a happier note , on another blog I found a product with which you can print your design on, adhere it to your fabric, embroider it and then dissolve it away when you are done! It is by sulky and it is called sticky fabri-solvy. It is printable which is how you get your design on it. Very cool. If you want to see a video on it go to "shiny happy world" blog. It is a great tutorial.
