Yeah... did I forget to mention I started working on another whitework project? This is actually not even from stitching. All that white you see up there is threads that were cut out of the fabric to do the hem borders. I haven't shared pictures yet because there really isn't much to see. I'm hoping I'll be able to show something soon as I've finished the cutting and have started stitching what amounts to a lot of four-sided stitches. Any guesses on what the project is?
This month, you get not just one TUSAL report but two. When I started doing goldwork, I decided to start a second ORT jar/container but this one will never get emptied. In the old days, metal threads like this were saved to be melted in order not to waste the precious metal because back then goldwork embroidery was done with REAL gold and silver. Today metal thread are still expensive but they're not made of the real deal (or at least not the ones I buy). You'll never see longs strands, just short stubs that are too small to reuse. Although, I might rescue one of the longer metal passings to fill out the tiny spaces in my Foxy's body.
