This is the last part of laid work embroidery on Beyond TAST challenge. This embroidery was quite interesting because- it was on my ‘to do’ list, the ground work for it was already done [adding the videos], it is a part of crewel work embroidery [which captivates me], the sampler cloth was ready with some designs, just copying the work from videos and the surprises and lessons learnt during the development of each design.
The designs-
Laid work with stranded cotton, and the work in perle cotton.
Another interesting development of the design.
Just diagonal weaving.
Zigzag weaving
We are back to laid work
Whipping the threads both ways on this design
I missed an intersection on this design. And the yellow thread is actually split stitch!
The sampler cloth looks like this now. The traced designs can be tackled another time.
