Holy smokes! That is amazing!
Wow... Linny your work always amazes me. Gorgeous.
Linny, stunning work
WOW! Linny this is stunning!
Thanks, everyone. This is hand embroidered and is done with thin gold cording I got from JoAnns that is couched down with silk thread. I wanted to try goldwork with something a little less expensive than real gold thread before I invested in it. Gold thread is very expensive as you might guess. Anyway, the flowers are done with DMC Metalic floss and each one has a bi-cone AB Swarovski crystal set on an AB clear sequin. At the base of the tree there are silver lined crystal beads. You should see it in the sunshine. It sparkles all over the room.
Linny, this is an exquisite piece of work. I love it.
I'm just speechless! Beyond words!
Thank you, Kris.
Awesome..A God given talent...
Thank you, Anna. It touched me, the way you put it.
WOW What a great job. You are really talented.
Oh my, what a beautiful job of embroidery work. Love it.
Unbelievable! I can't get over how gorgeous this is. May I ask how long it took to do it? (Do I really want to know???) :)
Thanks. Viki, this took 5 weeks of ardent work and over 20 yds of gold cording. Most of that 5 weeks, I was off work due to an injury. During that time, I worked on it almost constantly. I know that's hard to believe, but it's true. I really loved doing it. Did you ever have one of those projects that you just knew you were supposed to do? That's how this one was for me. I just drank it up.
