Couching thoughts

It's useful to have the thread you are couching held down by a needle, especially if you're trying to couch down two threads together.for the first time!

I'm using analogous coloured thread - i.e. similar spot on the colour wheel, so that the thing that is interesting about this is the texture. I could use something from the other end of the spectrum and create a zingy contrast with, say, lime green, or a more muted effect with a warmer green.

This is just a practice piece, on a bit of scrap from Barbara's bag, but i can see that it has potential.
