We have a winner for Mary Brown’s Goldwork Embroidery: Designs & Projects!
Goldwork Embroidery: Designs & Projects is a technique and project book chockfull of beautiful goldwork embroidery projects and instructional material. If you’re interested in goldwork, it’ll make a nice addition to your stitching library!
The winner of last week’s give-away of Goldwork Embroidery: Designs & Projects is Sabrina K. Here’s what she said:
…But I’m all for beautiful things that sparkle and I read in your review that there are a 100 pages devoted to projects and that sounds terrific!
I like the look of goldwork, but I haven’t made a project yet. I recently bought a little introductory kit to Metalwork from The Royal School of Needlework stand while they were in Zwolle. It contains Gold Pearl Purl, Silver Wire Check Purl and Silver Rough Purl. When opening it was the first time that I ever really saw these ” treads”, I couldn’t believe how tiny and shiny they were.
I haven’t started this project yet, but it is on the top of my to do list.
I do fear it a bit, what I fear is that when I will cut the ” tread” it will go wrong so that I will spill it and are left with all kind of peaces that I cannot use. I may sound silly, but thats how I feel.
Congratulations, Sabrina! Drop me a line with your mailing address, and this will be on its way to you soon!
Lots more book give-aways coming up in the future, including some beautiful Helen Stevens books, another excellent goldwork book, the A-Z of Threadpainting, and others – so keep an eye out!
Hope you have a terrific week!
