Your stitching is lovely! I've never stitched with metallics but can imagine they are a challenge.

Lovely progress!

Metallics make me cry too but I like the effect.

You got a lot done, Lesli. Have you tried running your metallics lighting over Thread Heaven? Also, use a bigger needle when you're stitching with metallics. It makes a bigger hole through your fabric and allows the thread to go through easier.
