Still slowly working away at my silk shading ( or needle painting) Luna almost has an ear. I have the turn back from her ear to work on next & her face still needs work too.
This is my 3rd piece for the Royal school of Needlework’s diploma in technical hand embroidery.
Unfortunately due to lockdowns & my health issues, this has been my longest running project on the course, so far.
She is finally starting to take shape. I recently finished her nose, although I still have the highlights to add.
My Whitework embroidery is finally finished & handed in for assessment. My own design, from my research on traditional Scandinavian patterns. The design is a combination of pulled & drawn thread techniques.
Unfortunately, it became a lockdown casualty, being left cut & the hem started for over a year. I’m overall pleased with it.
All the flowers are done. I really enjoyed this piece. It will be mounted ready for framing at some point.
Tiny poppies have been added to the corn field along with foxgloves & ragged robin.
Daisies & more poppies to follow. Better keep sewing 🪡
Getting started on the wheat field & long grass. Been having fun searching through all my green threads to find suitable ones. I love a bit of greenery.
This week I’ve finished the main trees ( 🤞hopefully) & made a start on the houses. I have a little more to add to the tree line & start on the grass, there is loads & loads of grass.
Yesterday I finished another vintage embroidery transfer & added another embroidered tea towel to my small stash.
All the fabrics have been applied & I’ve tightened my embroidery frame. The creative embroidery fun part can begin.
The trees are finally starting to take shape, one more tree trunk to go! The tree trunks are made from a old gift bag handle I found while tidying up.
