Thanks to an article in the online Quilting Arts magazine (Vol 4 I think), I had fun experimenting with thread painting on hooped dissolvable stabelizer. I didn't have the thicker type so I doubled some medium thickness that I had on hand. Next time I might throw a layer of bridal illusion in between the layers.
The only part that didn't work out is that with so many thread spools lying around, I knocked some on the floor and the depicted dog chewed one up. Life masticating art!
