Canvas stitches

Standard

My next royal School of needlework module is canvas work, I have a few ideas, but before I start designing I thought I would try out some stitches, on some spare canvas. 

Left to right they are; Slanted Gobelin, Byzantine, scotch & condensed scotch. ( in the book I’m using)

I have many more to try out!!

SAL & Jacobean crewel work

Standard

Instead of working on my zodiac sampler along side my piece of work for the royal school of needlework, I have been concentrating on finishing my crewel work & attempting to get it into this times assessment phase or at least finished so I can start my next piece in September.  The bunny is almost finished, he needs an eye & a little definition on his nose.  I’m not happy  with yellow & purple leaf & the stitch the tutor suggested, it looks too bulky & fluffy for me so it’s coming out, & back to my original idea.
