$^$@^!$ metallic floss

Okay. So, I learned there is something worse than cross stitching with metallic floss. Yup, it is *removing* metallic floss. Argh! I decided to pull out the small patch of metallic floss I used in a cross stitch and it was really nasty work. I will use a combination of regular and metallic floss only on small patches that I want to highlight. I might use rayon in future if I want shimmer; but straight metallic has gone into my bad books.

Oh, and I seem to have picked up a nasty summer cold somewhere along the way. It isn't all that surprising with the number of people I was around on the weekend.
