I have spent the last few months making preparations to do a special big sewing project.
This time it is for us
The Golden Tapestry, collection was inspired by the tapestries, paintings, ornate furniture and engravings in the Palace of Versailles in Paris, France
I bought the design back in summer and have been collecting together everything I need for it.
Silk Dupion for the fabric, gold metallic thread, stabilisers, batting and interfacing.
For the main part I have chosen Black silk dupion, stitched with gold metallic thread, the border I am doing in gold silk dupion with black stitching.
I have done the first six panels of the background
There are 32 panels for the background alone, then another 28 for the border, it will be 50 x 40 inches when finished
Once all the panels are done they are joined together like a jigsaw.
It is all being done on my embroider machine.
I have been really looking forward to getting this started.
