While I'm waiting to finish the newest row of NI, I've been working on embroidery I prepped last winter. I always forget how fast embroidery goes. This piece has been finished. It is supposed to go on a bag someday but right now I'm just embroidery, the sewing will happen another day.
These pieces also were completed sometime this spring/summer.
And yes, this is the same design as the first embroidery I showed you.
As you can see, I am using variegated thread. Some of these have been embroidered with #12 Perle cotton and some with embroidery thread. I'm liking the Perle cotton better.
The current project is this circle. I back-basted appliqued the fabric to the circle before I started the embroidery. The heart was supposed to have been a fill in embroidery stitch but I decided I would like an appliqued heart better.
I'm using regular embroidery thread on this block. There is just something about the Perle cotton that I like better, maybe it has more of a sheen to it?
These designs are from patchwork loves embroidery by Gail Pan.
I have another of Gail's books but decided I need to make more of the projects from the first book.
