I agree, you can never have too much thread, especially when it's beautiful hand-dyed thread!
This is a good example of how thread changes the look of a design. It's already looking very lovely, but what jumps out at me is not the hearts that form that first round. Instead my eye is drawn to the trefoils in the center and the negative space between the two rounds. I look forward to seeing it develop. Lovely thread.
Looks great!!! :)
