Inspirations Issue 105 - Simply Irresistible

Elegant and timeless projects that are simply irresistible.



In this issue we feature a goldwork masterpiece by Alison Cole, author of the recently released book The Goldwork Masterclass, reviewed in this issue.

Gilt, silver and other metal threads also shine in exciting designs by new contributors Cynthia Jackson and Georgina Bellamy.

Gold beads highlight the blossoms on a purse worked with Japanese-style bead embroidery by Margaret Lee and the superb blackwork on a small cushion, perfect for counted work enthusiasts, by new contributor Christine Burton.

We round out the issue with a new threadpainted design by Trish Burr, a delightful embroidered blanket by Yvonne McMillan Betts and intriguing botanical embroidery worked onto organza by Gary Clarke.
