As some of you know from a previous post I have completed Lady Greensleeves, hooray, hooray a happy dance day.
I first blogged about this project in March 2017, and 4 years later (that is what a WIP is), 61,600 stitches later on the 4th March 2022 it is complete. I keep gazing at the finished piece – in awe of how beautiful it really is. (Sorry if that sounds like blowing me own trumpet.)
Well I have chosen my new project, again it is rather large and it is Modern Folk Embroidery’s “The Fruit of Plenty” designed by Jacob de Graaf as a SAL last year but I just paid for the downloads so I could stitch within my own time schedule. Jacob showed his design in two shades of blue but I have chosen two shades of purple DMC as my main colours accentuated with black for the birds and squirrels and a dark green shade for the twiggy bits in the design.
Deep Purple shade 3837; Lilac Shade 554; Black 310; Deep Green 319.
Well lets show some some pictures of my start ……..
Well that is me for this week – so please take a peek at what the other members of this sewing group have achieved on their various projects.
