Continuing Adventures in Textiles

4

I decided I would need a concrete sketch to work from with my new interest in embroidery, and the best place to start was from my art journal – a doodle piece.

I keep pricking myself but I think that is because I’ve still not mastered the best way to hold the hoop or thread – and I’m left handed so many things seem more awkward! I started with black thread and worked my design from there, adding as I went along. I used stem stitch, back stitch, lazy daisy stitch and a feeble attempt at french knot – think I need to practice these so more.
