At first I started searching for DMC metallic embroidery floss in ebony black and gold. But the two stores close to me were out.
Instead I opted for these threads.
Gutermann metallic thread 9990 (Gold)
Gutermann metallic thread 1000 (Black)
Since they were not as thick as embroidery floss, I decided to use multiple strands as I hand embroidered the following patterns.
- On either side of the peach chain stitch: a running stitch
( I really didn't do them well, so early on, I gave up and just made regular knots
- On the blue chain stitch, I did a small horizontal stitch through the loop in every other chain link.
Hope these photos help!
And we are not done yet! Still more to come!
