I have been anxiously awaiting the start of two new round robins, Fools Gold I DYB and Fools Gold 2 DYB, which are the brain child of my friend, Gerry Krueger. The idea behind these is to have all the fun of goldwork embroidery using only faux gold - inexpensive trims, ribbons, beads, etc. that only look like real gold. So, I have just sent my set of blocks off to Gerry, who will stitch on them first.
These are my blocks for Fools Gold I DYB, all pieced in bridal fabrics - silks, satins, etc. in shades of white and ecru. I am hoping they will come home to me again adorned with lots of bling!
