Leslie's Block is Done - Fool's Gold.

I got to use lots of my Christmas gold cords, braids and beads and gold work techniques... It was fun and I definitely want to explore this some more after the first of the year. I'll also be checking the hobby stores for Christmas gold stuff on sale.... One of the best was the elastic cord sold for gift wrapping.. it was very supple and easy to couch... I tried several kinds of gold threads and liked Sulky the best...

Remember this as my inspiration... ? My flower was really too small but it is a great look using the red thread to couch the gold.... I will use it in the future...I used red Edmar threads to couch and will use something else next time... I just love it when I find something that I know will show up again and again in my work.....

Gerry,
Thank you for sharing the finished block with us. I am also thankful to know the source of these gold threads. With the upcoming holiday season we will all be out there gathering cording and trim.

Pure gold. I'm not surprised by the richness...after all it was stitched by a queen.
