Does Dover have it's own web page? If so, could someone zap me the
URL -- many thanks. If not, and someone has a phone number/e-mail listing
for them, I'd appreciate it -- I'd like to get their catalog.
Just finished a center square on my drawn thread sampler -- ugh -- I'll
never do this pattern again! Took hours over a very long time -- it's very
"lacy" looking -- lots of "building" of a pattern with knotted "wheels"
circular designs and then some needleweaving fillers using the threads from
16 spokes -- yes, you are right, you don't want to know! <gg> The amazing
thing is that the pattern is quite "strong" -- a miniature elephant could
try and run it's toes through the pattern and it wouldn't budge. I am
continually amazed at how strong knotted cotton thread is.
