Christmas Fabric ....

TAST 2010 38
Picot Chain Stitch
... Gold Christmas streamers with beads on a holly print fabric.
The thread is Kreinik Metallics Very Fine Braid,
which has a will of its own, twisting here and there in the stitching, (and so making automatic variations!).
It's mounted in a Christmas card frame..... oops! missed a bead on the left side!


  1. This is LOVELY.... I have tried to embroider with metallic thread before, but wound up taking it out.... need to try it again.

  2. You've done a wonderful job of this! The metallic thread tends to fray and unravel - you have much patience!
