paisley design bookmark

Paisley design bookmark from a DMC pack. Cross-stitch on Aida, backed with purple polycotton. Metallic threads which are a pain to work with.

    This is looking lovely! The pain of the metallic threads is worth it!

      It does look lovely. But you do need to work with really short lengths of metallic thread, otherwise it frays.

        I have only used metallic threads once which were the Kreinik Blending Filaments and they seemed pretty easy to use. I have heard a lot of people complaining about metallic threads!

        The DMC metallic embroidery thread seems to shred at the ends. Even with use of the wonderful Thread Heaven.
