Now You See It...
And shortly you won't.
This is a Charland design and I'm not very happy with how the metallic thread lies - it's Kreinik cord, and the stitches look horrible! Also, there wasn't enough included in the kit, and my LNS is having trouble getting hold of Kreinik since the UK distributor changed. So, today's task - when I've done some finishing - is to frog it all! Oh joy! I will restitch it in either Kreinik braid (which I have several spools of in my stash) or a DMC metallic,using plenty of Thread Heaven.
Where I've started the ribbon embroidery on the right hand side is also coming out.
Is it any wonder this was a UFO? :o)
