I know, I know, I have no time to stitch on what I have already 🙂 However, two correspondance courses in my embroiderer’s guild chapter are being discontinued, so I had to go ahead and sign up so I could at least get the materials.
First off, though I haven’t had a chance to work on it for some time, this is the current state of Forest, my first experiment in shadow-work. I think it will be impressive when it is completed, assuming I don’t mess it up TOO much 🙂 Please note that this is the back of the project, not the front side. The next time I take a picture I will get both sides (information added by Orthstitcher)
You might want to check out the the stump-work project Summer Dream here. The 17th Century Sampler is officially discontiued and is no longer available for viewing online. The sampler is just what, with a nice variety of stitches. I do not typically go for samplers, but this one is beautiful and I like the array of stitches used in it. Heaven knows when I will have a chance to actually work on either of them, but I have the instructions, and that is all that really matters.
