MooshieStitch Monday: Goldwork Daisy Part 3

In case you missed it, check out Part One and Part Two of my Goldwork Daisy series.

Todays' post will be what I learned from the following video:

Part 5: Cutwork and Finished Piece

The cutwork technique is used to add veins on the leaves. In the video, Sarah uses both bright check purl and wire check purl for the veins, but I decided to just use wire check purl.

Wire check purl thread is very similar to the bright check purl - but it is less shiny. More on the different purl threads can be found here.

Then it was on to finishing the flower petals.

The remaining three petals are stitched with couched down Japanese thread (the same technique as the flower stem) and I used a purple thread for the couching stitches. I really like the way the different color thread looks with the gold.

I added one couched row of pearl purl in the very middle petal and then bright check purl chips  randomly within the other petals.

This is where I didn't follow the exact instruction Sarah gave in the video. She adds more couched Japanese thread rows in the petals, but I thought I would try something different and I wanted to practice couching more pearl purl.

I will say again that I really liked this goldwork kit and would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn goldwork.
