Vintage Embroidery Monday and Stitchery Link Party

Several years ago, I had the experience of a lifetime - at least, for me. I took two seminars from The Royal House of Needlework.  The first was a beginner course that covered all sorts of different stitches and some beading. The class was scheduled to take all day. Another participant, Nancy, and I finished before lunch and the instructor asked if we would like to do something else. Our eyes lit up, we looked at each other and said in unison: "Goldwork!"

Our instructor looked a little - shall we say - reluctant. She left the room and came back with two kits from the beginning gold work class - that was it - I was hooked.

Here is the project from the class. It was a bit difficult to photograph, since it's behind glass - but I think you can see it pretty well.



I've started another gold work project - it's currently in my UFO stack in my closet. One of these days, I'll get it out and finish it.
