I'm usually okay using metallics, using shorter lengths, etc.  But I think I prefer the blending filaments(Kreiniks).  They are much nicer to work with.  I am lucky to have a really nice needlework store near me that carries a lot of the different ones.  I have also seen them at Michaels--but only the basics. 

Bought my fabric yesterday.  Just need to get it washed and my design printed out and I can get stitching.

Just checking in - I'm still here and alive! I was out for 2 days with a wicked migraine which left me in a dark room complaining that the cats are walking too loud, ha.

RE: Metallics - thread heaven is my savior. Love the stuff. And if you haven't tried the Sublime Stitching metallics, you definitely should - they rock! They tend to snag less and it comes in some great colors.

On the stitching front, I am going on to plan b. Unfortunately I'm not 100% what plan b is right now  Grin

I had something sketched out but I just wasn't happy with what I was stitching. My husband said it was okay, but I wasn't thrilled with it, so I'm off to find something else for jungrrl!

I'm still in my holding pattern on this swap.  Idea - check.  Fabric - check.  Finish first swap - no check.  Hopefully this next week I'll get to working on this swap!  Cheesy
