Time for another update on my cross stitch progress and I’m happy to say that I’ve gone back to my Christmas project and am excited to get stitching again. That small adventure quote project was just what I needed. A little bit of a change and a happy dance and now I’m up and running again.
Here’s where my Christmas project was last time I shared it with you all those months ago:
And here’s where I’ve managed to get to now:
I was hoping I’d get both of the final baubles done to show you but I didn’t quite make it that far. I’ll have the last one finished for next time and I’ll have started on the top section which is exciting.
It also means that I should start thinking about what to use for the gold stitching. I’m not going to use metallic thread as there’s just so much gold that it would be horrific. But I was wondering what everyone suggests? Shall I just use a gold coloured normal dmc thread? Is using one stand of metallic with one stand of normal a better experience that two strands of metallic? Are there any different brands or types of threads that you would recommend? Maybe a pearlescent type or something? Let me know if you have any recommendations and I’ll look into it.
