'Jungle Book' slip case - the base of the building

Time for some goldwork.  For the building motif that forms a frame for the main design in the centre, I'm couching imitation Japanese gold thread no. 8, using bright colours for the couching thread.

Starting at the bottom, I'm using a nice bright blue - Madeira stranded cotton no. 1102 - for the couching:

Here's the bottom section:

The next level up is in red, no. 0211:

And done:

The couching stitches are enough to give a hint of colour without taking away from the gold.

    Can't wait for the rest !
