Boring Week

Well this week has been kind of boring. I worked on a few things here and there but nothing I can share on the blog. Thank God Alison has released the next lesson for Pearl Butterfly a day early. The lesson has been printed and the first step done.

In lesson 2, we will be stitching with 2% gold 1 1⁄2 twist and embroidering the white sections of the butterfly with Au vers a soie.

Last night I only marked out the areas in preparation. Hopefully today I can start couching the gold twist. It's really hard to work on this at night. My craft light makes everything too shiny and casts a shadow, so most times I can't even see where I'm stitching.


  1. I would suggest trying to work only in good, natural light. Unless you're in direct sunlight, it doesn't usually sparkle back at you quite so distractingly!

  2. I'm so excited to see you starting your goldwork challenge, this is going to be beautiful.

  3. Gold work os so stunning. I know you'll excel, as you always do.
