Ive been slowly stitching away on the alphabet sampler.
Ive always loved embroidery, stitching little flowers on here and there...
|excuse all the creases...|
This would be the first big embroidery project i have ever tackled. I am really enjoying it, some of my stitching is a bit ordinary in spots but i think it is improving as i go along.
The original pattern uses crewel wool, but i have substituted with dmc floss and picked my own colours
I think the permanent marker i have used isnt fine enough, i can see bits of marker peeking out from under my stitching which spoils it a bit, ( but i spose its only if youve got your nose right up to it... )
The colours are really soft and pretty and im thinking of making a quilt using this palette. Ive ordered some fabric, (cos one can never have enough! ) and am waiting for it to arrive. In the meantime I'll keep stitchin' away!
