I found a project (now closed) offered through the Shining Needle Society that includes stitching and the accessories. "Thistlewood" by Jackie du Plessis
This is a counted thread project on linen.
The hand dyed silk thread is beautiful.
I will have all of the counted thread work completed this week.
It's fine stitching with the leaf fill stitched over one thread on a 34 count linen.
This is a picture (used with permission from Jackie) of the finished project, including the accessories to complete the set;
Glass Head Pins
Beeswax w/ Enamel Thistlewood 'caps'
Silk threads and fabrics
34 count linen
Handmade Scrimshaw/Bone Tools
Sterling Silver Charm
My Part 2 post will be my completed project! I'm very excited to learn the finishing techniques. I hope to have it completed yet this year.
