Confetti

by Lorna » Wed Mar 01, 2017 10:30 pm

Hi I am currently working on a Haed mini Kitty Heaven it is confetti hell(i did know that just looking at it). I am enjoying it but need to ask how do you tackle confetti and what method do you use to keep all the threads if parking in a fit state to work with. I should mention I am working 2 over 1 on 18ctl Aida

My HAED is full of confetti, too. I work on 10x10 squares, using a sort of vague parking method. I use bigger needles (say size 22?) which I put vertically through the cloth underneath a finished square which has threads hanging (for example). Then I take those loose threads and wrap them as a bundle around the needle in a figure of eight. Keeps them neat. Others use other methods, but that works for me.

For an illustration, see Doreen's thread on HAED Spring Fairy piece.
