Long time no post....
"Let me 'splain... No, there's too much. Let me sum up."
The reason for the break in posts, from last year, is that we moved. I no longer have the craft area that I had at the old apartment. But I'm still crafting. It's been an interesting year, and I'm now able to get out, and have been going to the local library (it's a 5 minute walk) to work on my embroidery.
This is some of what I've been working on...
This is worked in buttonhole stitch, detached buttonhole, woven picots, french knots, couching, lots of split stitch, and seed stitch.
Here's a close up of the split stitch petals and pearls.
You can also see the medium sized petals, that I worked in couching and seed stitch. I wanted to thank Mary Corbet for reminding me about seed stitch. It's a useful filling stitch.
Here's the back...
yup, all the backs are worked in detached buttonhole. I think it makes for a better look when the backs are embroidered as well as the fronts.
I'll be posting more frequently now that I've been able to get the pictures uploaded from my camera.
Happy crafting, you all.
