Sue Tebbutt has been perfecting her goldwork techniques on two different pieces of work.
Firstly, this printed panel which she bought from Beyond Measure in Todmorden.
but this yellow made me think of covering it up with goldwork"
Sue has also finished another piece of goldwork, this time using the advanced technique of Or Nué.
Or Nué (or shaded gold) is a form of goldwork embroidery using couching where different coloured silk threads are stitched over the metallic base of gold threads to form patterns or designs. The finished product is deliberately stitched so that the metal shows.
The or nué poppy was stitched by Sue Tebbutt from the design 'Lest we Forget' by Anna Scott Embroidery (Fine Stitch Studio).
Abigail Ledder has been on a workshop at Fabberdashery in Halifax and has made this fabulous tiny "Bear in a Teacup".
