I’ve returned to my Blackwork, after I abandoned it for a bit to finish my silk shading. My plan is to have this finished before Christmas & in for assessment.

Gold work puffin: string padding
The padding for the metallic threads is finished. The white area will be silver & orange area gold.
I’ve also been thinking about the basket weave pattern for the chest, the face & beak. I have acquired some rather nice red & black metallic threads for the beak & some iridescent gold leather for the feet & iridescent silver for the cheek. I’m glad I’m sampling & working designs & stitches out for myself, with a little help from my tutors.
Luna is finished
After 2 & a bit years I finished stitching Luna this morning 🤗. It’s been a long journey & there have been times, I’ve nearly given up, worked on other modules, I’m so happy the stitching is complete. I now have to mount her, get my paper work done & get her in for the summer assessment period.
Landscape phase 2: more sky
Still layering away with net & organza. Don’t be alarmed by the yellow it’s the base for the light coming through the trees 🌳.
Landscape phase 1: sky
The landscape appliqué is started, the back ground fabric is on. I started building the sky by layering net & organza & stab stitching it in place. The lower area of bushes (behind the trees) has also been stab stitched in place. The house remains pined on until I have finished building the sky.
