It went fine. I was surprised, it wasn't hard at all.
Then I tried a new stitch, the cable chain. It went fine too. I practised just a bit before using the vintage metal thread.
Next came the mica for the mirror. I cut it. I stitched it on and it is so cool. I think it looks good.
Then I made a fin. It didn't turn out too badly but it has a problem. One end is sticking out and it shouldn't. I could try and tack it down. I already tried threading into a needle and directing it down where it should be. Metal thread has a mind of its own and sometimes isn't very cooperative. I may just try again. I have to make another one anyway for the other side of the fish. I'll make sure to make the bend bigger than a quarter inch next time. Actually I am amazed that my fin turned out as well as it did. Amy Mitten's directions are great. I wish I could see it a little better when trying to stitch it. I may turn up my light to full blast and see if that helps. I think the fins are the last thing I have to do before the next lesson comes out. I'm almost caught up. I would show you a photo of my fin but at the moment I can't find it. Story of my life.
I put a few more stitches in Sweet Heart of mine. I am enjoying this stitch.
