I am doing the "Buttons and More" workshop over on Karen's Contemporary Embroidery sight.
The idea is to embroider within the circle and then make it into a covered button--you can see my tacking thread in some of the photos.
This one looks like a vase of flowers--not planned but that is how it turned out-there are Spider Webs-French Knots and Bullion Stitch.
I have decided to add a small amount of pink to each one which will tie them all together.
Little worms?--- I think I can honestly say I can do Bullion stitch now.
This one is hard to see because I was having trouble with the camera.
There are three bands of needle weaving and one of them has a row of pink Buttonhole stitch which then has another row in white to make it look like lace.
The other stitches are mainly French Knots (with three pink ones) and lastly is a spider web but it is not in the usual shape--just to be different.
My intention is to mount these on a box canvas but Iwill have to make one more (so there is an uneven number)
I am enjoying this class.
Now I have to try my hand at damp stretching---------------
