There is a new project for the threads in the first Frostings box that has been posted under the Web Instructions -> Projects part of the website. This is a project that I worked on live at the MET on stage and I was hoping to link to the video of that as well but they are rebuilding the MET website and it won't go up until after that.
This pink pincushion uses the different bullions and checks as well as a rococo and striped gimp in the class. Add your own couching threads, spangles and ground fabric and you have a really beautiful project. The pieces only uses about 20% of each thread type or less so you have plenty left to make more or use for your casket and other projects. This piece joins the Blackwork Rose and Pansy as pieces that can be made from the threads in the box.
And of course there is another box coming out soon! The last thread is in production and due to be finished in a little over a week and to me to get into the boxes laying here. So they will be shipping out for people in the near future. YUM!
I have shown the piece without an edging and tassels - there are soooo many options and some of the options are in the next Frostings Box so I didn't want to tip my hand. I would also like to see what ideas others come up with. Often acorn shaped tassels were used with metal threads covering them at the corners with thick gold or silver braids around the edges. I will pull out ideas from my archive and put them up on the blog this week.
