Today was an embroidery day as well..

I actually started this yesterday, but today I finished the outline stitching. I am planning on using couching to weave a thread in 3D across the shape. I haven’t quite decided what I’m going to use for the under thread as it will need to be rather large as the channels are about half an inch wide.Image

And since I was at a guild meeting I decided I might as well bow to peer pressure and start working on a queen’s favor. Yay for reverse chain stitch. We had a hilarious discussion about why anyone would ever teach regular chain stitching considering how awesome reverse is.Image

    I love when creative people have special jokes about their creativity. My dear friend is an art professor and I laughed at his final exam that included a “design joke”. I mentioned once how just a mention of Lord Byron, 19th Century Poet, makes me laugh. Now this reverse stitch is a brand new delight. I love seeing what you created and look forward to seeing more!
