The Northern Lights

Standard

Back in August & September I had been working on different canvas stitches & a design from this picture

I have finally completed enough , to share with everyone. I have loads to do, as this piece is for my royal school of needlework certificate. Once I’ve finished the trees & sky, I have all the fancy top stitching to complete ( under the watchful eye of my tutors). I also have a border to do too, as I have lots of different stitches around the outside, to make a smooth finish around the outside, hence the line round the outside, rather than being set out with waste thread.

Unicorn Dreams ( Zendoole stitch) 1

Standard

I have a new project to practice my embroidery stitches on. I’ve chosen pink, mauve & yellow to work in.  If it works out well I might make it into a cushion for our granddaughter ( hence the pink)

Here’s my progress 

I’m attempting to practice covering up all those black lines & getting smooth edges. 

It’s quite a fun design, isn’t it.
