I finished Or Nué Star Lily last night. I really like the way it turned out. We used the "economy" style of laying the thread - coming up in the hole directly below the one that the thread went into. My tension is not that even and the #16 braid was a little stiff to work with for this method, at least for me. So, I think I may try to either lay the metallic using a satin stitch so that it wraps around the back or lay it all on the top and couch at the end. Sounds like a trip to the needlework store for some canvas!
