This is one of the coasters that I'm making for the ig 50th anniversary party. I took a chance and did it in Metallic gold, and it worked out pretty well.

You can find the design here on Cute in the Lace section, page 2, 3rd row, called Napkin. It only shows a detail, but you'll recognise it.

Thank You! I was hesitant to try FSL with metallic thread, but I'm glad I tried it!

Your parents are going to be so, so surprised at all you are making! This turned out very well, and you can see it's metallic. How did the metallic work for FSL? Breaks, shredding? I'd love to try something, but the metallic is so expensive I'd rather not botch it & be frustrated into the bargain. Hugs, Marji

I was afraid of breaking and shreading, too. I DID have a FEW brakes, but not too bad. It was worth the extra effort to re-thread 3 or 4 times.

Thank You! I'm pretty pleased with the outcome. I think I may try to do a FSL bowl in the metallic. I thought it would make a nice centerpiece with red, white and pink roses in it.

What did you put in the bobbin?

waterlily by waterlily 17 Aug 2009

I just used white in the bobbin. I figure that side will be on the table, anyway, I sure didn't want to risk putting metallic in the bobbin... Cound make a big mess!

shirlener88 by shirlener88 18 Aug 2009

Oh no - just the opposite - it works better in the bobbin than any where else.

waterlily by waterlily 18 Aug 2009

Really?? I would think that the smaller winding would cause more kinking. I actually found a thread color that matches the gold very closely, just isn't metallic. That is what I was going to do the bowl and doily with. I may just be brave and try the metallic in the bobbin! Thanks so much for the info!
