Karahana, trefoils

It is frustrating to have so little stitching time when I am tantalizingly close to finishing Karahana. An hour here, an hour there, I have finished padding and stitching the trefoils, next I have to outline them with a couched pair of #4 gold.

For me stitching with #1 gold over the padded shapes has been the most difficult technique on this design. From some angels my stitching looks awful but from others it looks ok. I all depends how the light catches it.

Happy Stitching

The couching is looking good to me. Are you going to bring this with you to Manchester? Think people would be interested in seeing the gold work.
