The kit for my EGA group correspondance course, Luck of the Irish, that is.
Let’s see what the kit includes:
11×8 cut of Emerald Green Silk
Lacing, basting AND cuching thread
5 different sizes/kinds of needles
padding gimp (looks like floss to me 🙂
the English Metals (remember, this is a goldwork course)
Wire Check Purl
Interesing names for the metals, aren’t they?
The purls are all gold gilt, the spangles are 2% gold.
Materials are beautiful, the task somewhat intimidating to begin 🙂 However it promises to be fun once I force myself to actually start – needless to say, this isn’t like working with floss!
