Bit of Goldwork

I've finished Mark's slippers and have now moved on to another commission.

First to tack on the design...

.....there is a pattern here, honest!

A gold coloured silk is appliqued down and the design tacks removed.

After a quick press, I can start applying the gold metal threads and any surface embroidery.

I'm hoping that enough people can follow this. Blogger's reading list links are up the spout at the moment. Here's hoping they get it fixed soon, I'm suffering withdrawal symptoms!


  1. Well, I can see the pattern emerging in that early photo - and it looks great in the later ones...

  2. Bit fiddly, Rachel but OK so far!
