|From the Museum of Bath, England, mid 18th century|
This project doesn't really have a deadline, it's more of like a pick-up-put-down project, like I'll work on it in the car or when I'm waiting around without anything else to do. I've found that embroidering is CRAZY good at relieving stress, I did the bulk of this in school and on vacation, and in school it really helped me to block out all the stress and noise for a little while.
My embroidery design is loosely based on this image:
So, how about some in progress pics?
|I really do love the color scheme, the muted raspberry and golds against the strong azure.|
|Some more work still to be done on the left side...|
|All that's left on this side is to fill in the stems and vines with green thread!|
|I started filling in the stem here, but don't like the color green I chose. Going to tear it out and try using the same green as the lighter green of the leaves and berry stems. But look at that crazy gold flower!|
|The other pocket--not nearly as much done, but you can see the faint outline of the design.|
