The kit for this Needlework Nibble is available in the Needlework Nibbles section of the Limited Edition & Museum Kits. This project is based on a spot sampler in my collection, he strawberry repeats across the sampler corner. Examples of cushions worked in silver or silver gilt gobelin backgrounds usually have small queen stitch motifs arraigned in patterns such as that seen on my sampler. I have taken one motif and stitched it with Soie Paris silk and surrounded it with Gilt Special Tambour stitched in Gobelin. I had Gilt Special Tambour, a real English Wyre thread, manufactured for this purpose by Benton and Johnson. It is thick enough to cover the ground as seen in historic examples but also is a balanced thread that will not twist up on you when stitching as easily as other metallics.
