Rose Boudoir – #2


I’ve done a bit more to this one, but didn’t find much time to stitch last week so there isn’t a great deal of progress. I really don’t like the metallic silver that’s in it. I’m having to use really short pieces as it frays and snags if it’s too long.

RoseBoudoir-02I love this design and it’s fun to stitch, even with the dratted metallic thread.

I’m doing some more to the African sampler this week, ready for the SAL update on Sunday.

  1. Lovely! I hate stitching with metallics but I’ve got this chart so I’ll have to suck it up.


  2. I don’t like metallic thread either, although the result is always very effective


  3. it’s pretty! I too use very very short lengths of metallics. Apparently Thread Heaven works well, but it costs a bomb here.
