This post motivates me to work on projects that would otherwise would become UFOs. Visit pintangle to see how others have made progress on their projects.
I am currently working on a tunic, which was completed and has been given to the tailor. The mirrors have helped in taking the attention from the white thread. Initially it was not in the plan to use these bright colours, later felt this tunic would be very dull even with the embroidery and brought out the colours.
The stitch on TAST challenge this week is woven trellis. I had worked this stitch sampler on previous challenge. And yet to start on working on it this week. I was also looking for some leaf stitch other than detached chain on my crazy quilted hussif.
I used this stitch on the seam along with stem stitch with two colours and metallic thread. As Sharon suggested, this polyester thread does not bring out the beauty of the stitch.
I wanted to work this stitch on feather stitch. Straight stitches were worked on feather stitches.
Woven trellis stitches were worked on these after that. The flowers are worked with oyster stitch and french knots were added to the base.
I have drawn a pattern for embroidery on tunic. It also has mirror worked borders, a simple border to incorporate the mirrors was also drawn this week. Now eager to see what others have been working on this week.
