Sumptuous Surface


While this is not a recent piece of stitching I re-discovered it last week while searching for something else.
It was done at a workshop with Effie Mitrofanis.
The class was called Sumptuous Surfaces and it was all hand stitching- which I found different because I mostly do free machine embroidery.
I have made it into a small wall hanging now.
I also noticed that I had done some Herringbone stitching on it to hold down the green cord and also on the right hand side where the purple piece is.
More re-discovered samples tomorrow

I love the bright colors of this. All of your stitching is wonderful and adds great texture.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting on my buttonhole sample.

Doreen, hope you don't mind me leaving my thank you here. I didn't see an email to reply to. Thank you for your very generous explanations on the paper castings. I will probably give them a try again, just not sure how soon. :)
