What materials did you use? Linen DMC threads Krenick Metallic Thread

What are you most proud of? That it was finished. It took about 6 months, and I had to abandon the Krenick metallic thread partway through because it was unworkable and unusable.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If I had to do it again, I would switch to Aida (this is one of the projects that made me swear off linen!) and ditch the Krenick - it smells funny, keeps breaking and is not worth the hassle! I have put it Advanced because it's large, fiddly, on Linen and with strange threads

Thread heaven is what is described as Thread conditioner and protectant You draw the thread through the thread heaven then pull between your fingers and this makes a static charge which prevents tangling and fraying Wonderful stuff
