Although Jacobean embroidery is traditionally stitched in wool threads, Beppy introduced us to a different interpretation, using a mixture of metallic threads and organza, next to cotton and silk threads, with a touch of goldwork with some kid leather.
Beppy always brings a lot of her own beautiful work to show and inspire us. For most of us it was the first time we used a kid leather and organza in our embroidery, so it was this part we all stitched first, while under Beppy's supervision. The concentration! And yes, this was all I went home with!
But I did enjoy this type of embroidery very much and I was determined to finish it eventually and not just put it in a draw....
Finished "Jacobean with a Difference"
It was also the first time I used lovely Pearsall's silk threads, so lovely to stitch with.
