All that glitters…..

After what seems like quite a long break, I was back at the RSN at Hampton Court last weekend, to finally start my goldwork module. I had mounted my calico at home and so when I arrived I set to mounting the silk I had chosen.  I have opted for an octopus for my piece so wanted my silk to represent water – hence the dark blue colour.

Once the silk was mounted I pricked and pounced my design before painting an outline. This was then left to dry and any pounce remaining was brushed off. Here is where I am up to now…..

Homework will be to stab stitch down the silk and start to apply padding. Wish me luck!

Happy stitching everyone.
