Dear Reader,
I share here what I like and what works for me. If you've been following me, you know that I can change my mind from time to time, and feel free to comment that I'm completely wrong, you may be right. I'm not running a business. I'm not paid and have never received any compensation or facilitation for any review/brand/site here mentioned. In case one day we'll ever meet, I'll be the one offering you a cup of Italian coffee, too.

Just to let you know, my official English level as a foreign speaker is B1- INTERMEDIATE (European Council Level). That means - and it is - that I simply can't "understand a wide range of demanding, longer texts, and recognise implicit meaning". But I try. I do my best effort because I love communicate with all of you and I thank you very very much for your patience in reading me.
That motif is the 9th square, rather "they are" the nineth evolving pattern, with a lot of INTERMEDIATE attempts between. The last in the left bottom is the last, I'm happy with that, it has a good edge connection with the previous motif.
Color scheme: primary colours.
Techniques: split ring to climb from first to second round.
It is 3 rounds, worked with 2 shuttles, both filled with Perfect Quilter threads sent by Fox, I don't know which color number they are, This thread is very similar to DMC #80, but it's softer.
I hope that you like it.
(P.S. I owe you a pattern for "quad_08"!)

Giusto così per parlare, il mio livello di inglese viene classificato intermedio, B1 (European Council Level). Questo per dire che non riesco a capire testi lunghi e complicati e a cogliere eventuali battute o allusioni. Ma ci provo. Faccio del mio meglio perché adoro comunicare con tutti voi e vi ringrazio tantissimo per la pazienza che mettete nel leggermi.
Questa piastrella è la nona, o meglio, "tutti questi" sono la nona piastrella, con diversi tentativi intermedi. L'ultima in basso a sinistra è quella che mi piace di più, si attacca bene alla precedente.
Colori: primari (mi pare che ci sono tutti)
Tecniche: ho solo usato l'anello spezzato per passare da un giro all'altro senza tagliare i fili.
Ho usato due navette riempite col filo Perfect Quilter spedito da Fox, somiglia molto al DMC #80 ma risulta più morbido.
Spero che vi piaccia.
(P.S. prometto a presto lo schema del quadratino n.8!)
