Hello I have this pattern: http://www.colonialpatterns.com/images/HIT105/3937.gif
Aunt Martha "Handome Peacock" # 3937 He is BIG abt 16 x 20 inches. It will take me a long time... I'm sure. I'll do it till i get bored, then come vack to it.
I'm going to stich on a flour sack (I think) towel to frame.
I'm looking for color suggestions. I'll be using DMC brand.
I've not worked with metallic thread yet ... I'm want to try some small stuff with that & see how that goes first. Iw as thinking on some of the feathers like maybe a few in the upper tier, doing 1 strand of metallic & 1 strand or reg. thread. Any one tired this?
Also anyother suggestion, a flour scak towel ok to be framed?
Thanks for any tips or imput.
