Just a quick little post to refer you to a good technique post that you should read, if you’re interested in goldwork.
Now, this is something that everyone in the world may have already known, but when I first started goldwork, I did not know this technique. When I learned it, it changed the way I looked at couched threads.
Carol-Anne of Threads Across the Web wrote up a great post on plunging threads using a plunging lasso, or what she calls a “sinking needle.”
If you haven’t read it or are not familiar with this idea, check out her post! The concept is simple, and it makes couching techniques a whole lot more palatable!
While you’re there, check out her latest finished goldwork project – it’s stunning!
