Golden Grasses Embroidery

Sunday, February 12, 2012

I'm organizing another round of the Embroidery Hoopla swap on Craftster. In this round, we're all using either silhouette or negative space techniques for our hoops. 

This is one of the pieces I made. Originally, I wanted to stitch the grasses and flowers in black on a background that looked like a sunset. I decided to flip the concept around and embroider with a golden floss on dark shadowy fabric. It's done with several different stitches including; back, chain, stem, split and french knots. 

I hope my partner likes it!

So pretty. I think i like it better switched like this, rather than black on sunset. Your partner will love it.

Good day to you my friend. I needed to give you a quick note to express my thanks. I've been studying your blog for a month or so and have picked up quite a lot of good info as well as enjoyed the way in which you've setup your blog. I am attempting to setup my own blog but I feel it is too general. I want to focus more on specific topics. Being all things to all folks isn't all that it’s cracked up to be. Many thanks.
