Love Stitching  
I love to stitch, and I love Mill Hill kits. So, of course I had to stitch this:

I like the design, and it was interesting stitching with Sullivan’s floss. But, I’m pretty sure now that I wouldn’t go out of my way to stitch with Sullivan’s again. Will I avoid Mill Hill kits because of it? No, I don’t think so.

I think my main issue with Sullivan’s is that is very sewing thread-like. By that I mean it is tightly twisted and doesn’t feel as soft as DMC. It also seems to tangle and twist more easily, but because it is so tightly twisted to begin with, it is a bit easier to unknot it. Ultimately, my experience just confirms that DMC is my cotton floss of choice.

It's so pretty! I hear you. There are yarns that are soft and make nice projects, but I don't like to knit with them unless I'm totally in love with something from that brand for a project. Then there are ones that I just avoid like the plague but that other people love. Personal preferences can be so funny! By the sounds of it, I think I would probably follow your lead in floss.

Oh that's neat! I always mean to get some of that plastic stuff to stitch on, but whenever I'm shopping for stitching things I always seem to forget to look for it.
