Looking over Shoulders 10

Hi everyone

You may remember this blog post on an Alison Cole Goldwork class held at the Guild in 2013. Here’s the design the class worked on:

Standing Tall goldwork

Well Pat Bootland has got out her UFO from this class and started stitching again. In her very creative way she’s decided to change the fabric element at the base of the design into a dragon.

And not just any dragon but a gorgeous medieval dragon.
