An New Technique
I finished this three wise men ornament the other day. Mary McGuire (who works at Welcome Stitchery) taught this technique at our last EGA meeting. It is called an Or Nué. You lay gold thread on congress cloth and then do vertical stitches over the gold threads to make your design. It was a quick finish, and I am hope to do more with this technique. Mary explained how to use a counted cross stitch design to do this, and I think many of the members went home to look for charts to convert!
