More of Galaxy and another WIP

Hi everyone,

Just finished another WIP, Morganite by Debbie Rowley, DeBees Designs. This is the first time I have used Silk Lame Braid and there is obviously a trick to using this thread. Wasnt sure if laying it or twisting it would tame this tricky little thread. It has a lovely sheen and is soft as butter but it splits apart when you stitch with it.
There is also quite a bit of Neon Rays which has a mine of its own. And yes laying it straight on the back as well as the front does take away some of its bad habits, but trying to stitch a narrow herringbone stitch row with Neon Rays does not make for a harmonious couple of hours. But I survived and learned. Here is the photo.
It is a very pale design with lots of satiny shine and sparkle.

Also stitched a little more of Galaxy, this added more of the Eggplant watercolours and is a very bold pattern. I love the triangles with two colours around the octagons (only 2 completed so far).

Happy stitching, bye for now, Carol
