Q&A with Kathy Riggs

Carol Ann Waugh asked:
Yummy! Where did you buy the white embroidery thread?
Kathy Riggs answered:
It was in my garage, long time stored cool and dark. Was my mother's for a huge double weave fabric embroidery project she never finished. I've dyed quite a bit of silk and wool fiber and yarn, so just new fiber type and dying chemicals/processes for the cotton. Could buy embroidery floss anywhere, I guess. This is 2 ply. I would rather have 3 ply, I think.
Pam NZ asked:
Yum! You'll have fun stitching with these! Is that a little helper I spy on your profile pic LOL? A baby bichon?
Kathy Riggs answered:
No, a Havanese. Still cute as I was told recently. Belongs to a friend of a friend. Was gently dyed with Kool Aid at the time
