I am taking on online surface embroidery class through joggles.com and this is the first pass of my monochromatic sample. What possessed me to add the chevron stitches??? Dumb idea, far too geometric and bold. I need to make a fabric postcard for the Sisters Quilt Show and this may be it!
The leaves were stitched with Sheep's silk, a 50-50 blend of silk and wool. It was lovely to work with. The feather stitches were Wildflowers, a matte cotton and also one of my favorites.
Our next assignment is to add more highly textured/dimensional stitches. It should be fun!
