I learned it from watching you, Lulu B!  Or rather, making you show me all of your craftiness inspired me!

I've heard that using a few strands of metallic sewing thread is less frustrating then metallic floss...may have to give that a try because your pillow is so purty.

Oh, how pretty! There's a company, I think it's called FyreWerks or some similar cutesy spelling that makes an array of metallic flosses that I like to use. They're not totally easy to work with, but better than most I've tried.

I love your pillow! It is so professional looking. I tried to imitate it for my boyfriend's mother for Xmas (she loves Celtic things, as do I), but I didn't use a pattern and it came out looking not as cool as yours. Still.

Trust me, there are spots on it that are best observed from far away!  Did you use metallic thread?  It can be a pain to work with.

That came out very nice! It looks very big, I bet it took a long time to do.  I like the colors you chose too Smiley

did you stitch with the metallic thread, or couch it on?

I've found that couching metallic threads onto fabric works a lot more easily than trying to stitch wtih the damned stuff.
