The purpose of this article is to provide an index for all the posts in my recent goldwork embroidery project, the stylized pomegranate. With the links to each step-by-step article on this goldwork project all in one place, it will be easier to browse through the different aspects of goldwork embroidery that I covered in this project. Almost every article in the series has some valuable tips and techniques for goldwork, so I’m hoping that readers will find it useful to use as a reference.
I began this particular goldwork embroidery project in February, 2010, and finished it almost two months later, at the beginning of April. It took a total of 56.5 hours to work, including project design, set-up, and the stitching. The finished project will (eventually) be framed.
