My new project is Swallow wedding by DMC. It will be for our anniversary on the 30th of May. It will be 36 years!
I love swallows, as I associate them with beautiful summer's day and the arrival of spring.
The material is 28 count linen (which I never stitched on before) + DMC Pearlescent effects + Precious Metal Effects thread (Metallics!) and beads
At first, I could not get started as the metallics got in a terrible mess at the back of my work and it looked so uneven.
Then, I found a video on You Tube, which gave me a solution!!! I now stitch with only one
short length of metallic thread but do each leg of the stitch twice.
It works a treat!
Here is the kit:
