O.K. So I have almost completed the crewel wool stitching of my medieval owl picture . I just need some dark grey to define the edge of the stem . .....and then I,m going to put him aside while I look for some gold threads . The original Illumination has gold leaf applied , which I want to recreate .
The trouble with goldwork is the really good gold threads are so expensive , because they have real gold in them ... I have a few gold metalic threads in my sea chest hoard , but I cant decide . So little owl is going to be put aside , while I do abit of research into Goldwork .
