Goldwork Day 3

I began yesterday's session completing the gold chips sections








It took up alot of the morning





Completed Chips! At Last!



I finally got to move onto something new.


Couching Down Twist and Passing Threads,


using a purple stranded thread for decoration



Continuing Crouching

For some reason after uploading, deleting and uploading again Blogger insists on putting the last two photos upside down!



Completed crouched leaf section


End of Day

That's gorgeous ... looks tedious though, but the end result will be worth it, can't wait to see it all finished.

Alison, this is exquisite work, I love the effect of gold and yellow together.

The silk-checked couching looks lovely. It's so satisfying when these techniques come together, isn't it!
