For those who love the soft, muted colors more than my typical "knock your socks off" brights, here is "Lavender Cream". Again, I had fun with the serged cord I made. I used Halo metallic thread by Superior Threads in the upper looper and variegated Pixelles Trilobal Polyester thread by Signature Threads in the lower looper to make this lovely cord.
By letting the cord curl from one side to the other, both threads show adding most interest to the design. Extra bits were looped and added between the borders. The subtle contrast invites a closer look to really notice the sparkling details.
