The Silk & Gold Rose kit is a very pretty design which covers couching Japanese gold with green silk floss to represent leaves, cutwork with bright check purl for the centre, and using long & short stitch with lovely blue-mauve silk flosses for the petals. Silk floss has a lovely sheen to it, which combines beautifully with the gold thread.

All kept tidy in a neat little box.
