The Silk & Gold Rose kit is a very pretty design which covers couching Japanese gold with green silk floss to represent leaves, cutwork with bright check purl for the centre, and using long & short stitch with lovely blue-mauve silk flosses for the petals. Silk floss has a lovely sheen to it, which combines beautifully with the gold thread. The finished embroidery measures 7.5cm wide by 7.5 cm high. Suitable for all levels. All my kits are packaged using recyclable and/or biodegradable materials.
