    Have been waiting years for time to get to Jane Nicholas’ tile works. Here’s my first (yes first!) work with gold threads.

    • Absolutely gorgeous.

    • Like you, I’ve been waiting a very long time to find the time to stitch a piece from one of Hazel Blomkamp’s books; maybe that piece needs to move up on my projects-on-the-waiting-list.
      Your stitching does NOT look like a first-timer for gold-work!

    • Thanks for the nice words! Last year I did Hazel’s owl from Crewel Creatures. It took forever, but turned out beautifully, and I’m very pleased. So … jump in! Hazel’s projects are very fun.

    • Cynthia – it is absolutely gorgeous! Definitely not first timer looking! You are encouraging me to return to some Jane pieces that I have in process.

    • Thanks, Beth! I’m gong to continue working more pieces from this book of Jane’s (her Stumpwork & Goldwork inspired by Turkish, Syrian & Persian Tiles). Luckily I stocked up on supplies to do a few more of these.
