Three Leaves Looking Good

I’m very glad I had the opportunity to take this class from Margaret Kinsey. It was an excellent piece for a beginner.

Not only was working with gold new for me but so was working on black & it was not easy. So, blackwork on black background provided the second challenge. However, I did it!! And, I pre-poked the places to stitch the blackwork. In that way I was able to see better & be sure everything lined up. Not sure what the “needlepoint police” would have to say about that but it made my life easier!

Pre-poked blackwork

And, here is the finished piece – looking good times three!! I am very happy with my first goldwork piece.

Beautiful piece and impressive stitching. I’m a big fan of the blackwork background, though I’m sure it was a challenge.
