Firefinch - This charming design came to me as I viewed French chinoiserie paintings at a historic home. A bell or flower hangs down attracting the little bird to stop on the branch nearby.
The Firefinch is a great way to start your silk shading journey. You will learn a padding technique, silk shading, goldwork combined with some crewel work stitches. The design combines a number of different threads and is finished off with some Swarovski beads. The design is suitable for a confident beginner or an intermediate stitcher.
