It's time for another question thread!

The rules:

- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in To Answer, Or Not To Answer and in this comment thread.

Heads up!

Project Christmas Stocking

My job has been pretty awful and stressful since spring and I'm only just now getting back in a crafty place again. I just didn't have the brain capacity for very much before.

However, Project Christmas Stockings is taking off! I'll be using this tutorial, with some modification to do with personalisation. I've got all the materials I need and have started on the names. I initially thought I'd replace a bit of the stocking cuff with the embroidered aida, but then a couple of things happened (I blundered with the placement when making the start on the first one, and have discovered a stubborn stain on the aida for another part), so rather than starting all over, I've decided to just cut the aida smaller and applique it onto the cuff instead. And after I thought about that for a bit, I think I actually like that idea better than my original (although much easier) idea.

I'm using this varicoloured floss for the names, which I've never worked with before. The effect is quite good! I had wanted a redder red, but this was the reddest I could get. It's not too bad though. I do feel like the strands must be finer, because I'm not getting nearly as good coverage as with regular floss even railroading to the best of my ability. They don't seem to be with the naked eye, but there's definitely a difference from other things I've worked on the same cloth. Can anybody confirm or deny? (ETA forgot to say I always use DMC floss)
