On this fifth one, I wove through the star stitches again and then added additional straight stitches using the gold thread.
And then for this sixth and last one, I did a simple weaving pattern again and then used the gold thread to add additional star stitches. I have to say that these were great fun to do, seeing how weaving the gold thread through the stitches could be used to create various patterns. I can see a lot of applications for this technique and will likely be using it again on other projects.
The Embroiderer`s Association of Canada (EAC) is having its last ATC swap this coming April and these are the first ones I have made for that swap. I could have cropped the photos and shown them a couple days ago but decided not to cheat - to go ahead and do the finishing first , my least favourite part!
