|Exotic Flower by Margaret Kinsey|
Exotic Flower with Margaret Kinsey, my first introduction to “gold work”. I’m really happy I took advantage of this class hosted by the Monmouth County NJ EGA chapter. I took the class to get familiar with another style of needlework that dates back to Yuan Dynasty, as in 800 years ago. Many things have gotten easier over the years, I’m not sure this holds true with gold work embroidery.
But the beauty from working with gold threads and metal threads is tremendous and in this day and age of cute and whimsey I relish anything that has tone of beauty.
