I finally finished "Tweet Gift" today. Here's a picture.
Let me just say that metallic thread is a pain in a sewing machine. Got it to work ok after finding a few tips online about adjusting the needle and tension. Eternally thanking Brother for including the right sized needle in the kit that came with my Project Runway machine.
Later on, I decided to tackle "Shining in the Night." I had my first run in with invisible thread. I think it turned out quite well.
