I can’t quite believe it’s three weeks since I last posted about my flower embroidery! The design is by Di van Niekerk and it consists of twelve different mini panels, all diamond shaped, there’s ribbon embroidery, stumpwork, as well as more usual embroidery stitches. It’s going to be quite a long term project (especially if the last three weeks are anything to go by!) I haven’t got as much done as I had hoped as I’ve been trying to catch up with my Anderson Farm quilt but I have managed a few hours embroidery…
Three weeks ago I had just started, it looked like this;
I’ve managed to complete two of the aloe flowers, there’s an awful lot of bullion bars to each flower so it is taking me longer than I expected, I thought I’d be well onto the leaves by now! It doesn’t look much for a few hours work but that’s hand-work for you. I was tempted to use two threads of DMC instead of one but having asked for advice at my Embroiderers Guild meeting, I persevered with one strand, I’m glad I did, even though it’s taking a lot of stitching.
