I'm doing some rather fabulous work this week with a touch of neon. Very now, very on trend.
But can I find any neon pink thread to add the finishing touches?
No I can NOT!
I have scoured all the shops round here. (Haberdashery shops are slightly thin on the ground actually but I've done a full search in both of them without result.)
I have searched the interweb. I found some in America but the postage charge was more than the cost of chartering a flight there and buying it myself.
At one point I saw just what I was looking for on Ebay... "fluorescent pink thread"
Yay! I ordered 2 so I'd have enough to last a lifetime. It arrived. It was pink. It was not fluorescent pink. I sent the woman a snotty email. She did not reply.
Sooo I have taken drastic action. I have bought a neon pink t/shirt and slowly unpicked the damned thing keeping the thread in one piece so I can sew with it.
Recycled neon thread. I am so green!
