Today I thought I would have a play with some metallic threads I have...
Yes... hello friends :)
They have been sitting in my drawer for some time now and well seeing as its Christmas I thought I would make a Christmas card. I mean... how hard can that be?
Oh my!! I have literally spent ALL day on this! Metallic threads are well... not the easiest thing to use are they? I tried and well... I never gave up, I think that is important as I did want to throw it across the room several times!
Here is how it started...
The metallic threads I chose.. ha ha I never actually realized they would stitch up the same! I know now!!
Yes... green! A nice Christmassy colour... nope never stitched a tree, although you would of thought I would of! I chose something a little more traditional. A bauble... and well it came out ...different looking...but I tried!
Several hours later...
A little close up.. although you cannot see the green at all..
I am pleased I tried to use metallic threads... I would of wondered what they were like!
And my conclusion is that I really dislike them! ha ha
Thought I would have another go at a Christmas card...using 'normal' threads'. I did think of using one of my buttons but I fear it might of broken in the post before it reached its destination.
I love to stitch but OH MY!! I dont think card making is for me! But like the title of this thread states.... I tried!
Back to my 'new' stitch.. cannot show you any more.. maybe tomorrow :) Yes I could stitch a lot more tomorrow with all the lovely crafters and stitchers all over the world joining in on the Friday Night Sew In :)
Take care... happy stitching to you all :)
And THANK YOU for all your kind words regarding Han :)
