Still trying out stitches to see which ones I like. I have some ideas but no design yet.
The stitches are
Encroaching slanted Gobelin, Mosaic & Condensed mosaic.
I still have vertical & horizontal stitches and cross stitches to explore as part of this module.
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!!
It is finally finished & mounted. I just have the paper work & a label to make for the back. Then in for assessment at the royal School of needlework.
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.

Here’s my progress so far. I’m still slowly working on the rabbit, I need to darken him up a bit at the bottom as you can not see his legs very well. Only 3 more lessons to go.
Here’s my progress as of last week ( I just realised I had not done an update). My major stitch is long & short , yes that means the bunny.
Here’s my progress over the Easter holidays, I think I’ve done rather well, I’ve almost finished my homework. Back to school tomorrow ( I got an extra day , it’s my day off) & my exam classes are all doing tests so that will be probably it until my next lesson. I’m really pleased with it so far.
