My secret squirrel project is finished and left by courier it will be a few weeks before I can share the photos.. I have not yet stitched my fob for June but there is still time, however I have finished stitching my piece for the guild challenge. The challenge this year was to do a letter of the alphabet in any embroidery technique we wished as long as it fitted into a 10cm square.
My letter is cut from a piece of raw silk (once a skirt and I have used so many piece from it over the years) it is outlined with a brown silk and mounted on a piece of lovely mottled linen....
In this photo the colour is more true.....and I was pleased with the way it was coming along.
French knots, needle weaving for the leaves and very small copper bead caps for flowers completed the design and it is finished ready for mounting on a piece of cardboard.
Its is almost time for my blog anniversary, watch out for my next posting for more news on this.
