The People Chose Glitter

This month's theme for Jo's wonderful all purpose SAL is 'Glitter'. And isn't that a fabulous theme for the month of Christmas?! What I'm not as sure about is how to translate that into stitching. Sure, I love a bit of bling as much as the next girl, but I wouldn't necessarily call beads or metallics 'glitter'. What glitter I do have is this fabric which is literally spray painted with glitter (and thus, a little sticky) and VERY glittery - but it barely shows up in the picture!

I think it's the same with the blending filament on the Mermaid here...sparkly in person, barely showing up in the picture! I think with glitter, you just got to trust the one taking the picture!

Glitter rarely shows up well without a fancy camera. But you chose some great projects to go along with the monthly theme. Happy stitching! -Andrea

Thanks for taking part in The People’s Choice this month. Rachel talked about the spray glitter fabric which sounds very tricky to stitch on! Love the Mermaid and her hint of sparkle too.

I didn’t know what would constitute glitter for this link up. Your two choices are perfect!
