Full Metal Flowers is a sampler of twenty-four distinct Elizabethan surface stitches. Worked in six shades of metallic passing thread on high-count linen fabric, the student chooses either a square shape suitable for framing or a triangle similar to a 16th century forehead cloth. Uncommon stitches are worked first on large-mesh canvas to learn the thread’s path before being worked at the final size.
