Thank you for all the lovely comments about my blue piece below, so pleasing to receive them.
Here is my latest little piece, a class sample to show how some surface stitchery stitches can be worked on canvas. Please note it is not blue!
The stitches worked in DMC Perle #5 are Raised Chain, Fly, Running, Woven running, Herringbone, Backstitch, Buttonhole and variations, Sorbello, Detatched buttonhole, Woven spiderweb, Bullion and French knots. The next one needs to show the repetitive use of stitches, and will probably be one of my minor pieces for the certificate. It needs to be completed by Thursday so I had better get a move on.
