Peace Embroidery No 4 April 2017

I am really cutting it fine this month but I did get my piece finished.

I ended up unpicking the lettering and changing the stitch and the thread colour.  Last week Queenie featured ' satin stitch outline' on the Sunday Stitch School.'   This is a far better choice for the lettering.  I also added two extra springs to my original design.  Again what looks balanced on paper can translate differently into embroidery.  I think the pale colours would look entirely different if I had used a plain instead of a printed background fabric.

I painted an old embroidery hoop that had a cheap screw on it.  I'm glad I found a use for it and it didn't end up in the garbage.  So all in all I'm quite pleased with the outcome.  It certainly was a learning experience.

I have another two pieces that I want to do in this genre but they will have to wait.

Good to have found a use for a hoop that isn't really up to its usual task!

It makes a good frame.
