Explores laying silk, shading, beading and couching techniques and more!
In our Group Correspondence Course Shimmering Dreams with Mona Hill, ever-larger sparkling squares rotate around a shiny central medallion to finish in a star silhouette. This glorious 10” x 10”composition of metallics, silk threads, and blending filaments explores laying silk, shading, beading and couching techniques, and working layered and composite stitches, (including sprats head and Amadeus hearts). The thorough text contains many diagrams. White congress cloth makes a quiet, sparkling piece; navy congress cloth makes it glowing, and dynamic.
