No stitcher will ever tell you they enjoy stitching with metallic thread. Likewise for me. Sure, we might like the shiny effects but gosh, it is so fiddly to handle and frays so easily. It's the abomination of all threads.
Which is why, after completing the swirling ribbons behind Savannah, I decided that I've had enough. Backstitches aside, I'm converting all the cross stitches in the "Welcome" word above her head to Mill Hill beads.
Hopefully they'll arrive soon while I'm still in a stitching mood.

I love using metallics! But can't wait to see your work with beads! Your stitching is very pretty!
