Petite Fleur is almost complete, missing just a few beads plus the finishing. I'm going to make her into a hanging ornament so that it may displayed year round. This is also going to be a class piece for folks who want to experience working on silk gauze. Deadline looms with an early April local ANG class.
Twisted - My version of "Twister" is getting a sliver here and sliver there put in. Right now the golds:
Finally, Glove. This is my go to piece when I'm tired after a day of work. I'm loving the Soie silk that we're working these in. I am finding the linen a bit of a challenge to get my stitches in where exactly where I want them to be. Perhaps this is because I'm tired when working or it is a looser ground fabric than I'm used to or it is just a looser linen... There has been some discussion on using a backing fabric but our instructor has written us to say that the linen is strong enough to support the stitching. Anyway, this picture is a week old so more has been worked. Updated pictures to come. Can't wait for the Goldwork to begin!
