Embroidery Progress

I’ve made quite a bit of progress on the hoop since it’s last been up here.


I love how the leaves turned out, they look gorgeous!


I taught myself a new stitch to do this sheer purple shawl, though the stitch isn’t very sheer. It’s called ‘raised stem stitch’, and the idea was to make the fabric look sheer or woven, which satin stitch wouldn’t have achieved.



You can see why it’s called ‘raised stem stitch’! Looking back, I may need to put a little shading in, as the fabric is twisted like it’s been thrown in the air.



I also used a little metallic thread for the top hat and ribbons on the circus tent. I remembered the shading for the gold ribbons, thankfully!

Anyways, see ya!

  1. It looks beautiful! I love the design and the way you embroidered it. It’s so cool that you can shade with embroidery. And what a nice quote…I really have to see this movie!


    1. Thank you! I love the effect shading with embroidery gives, it looks so cool. There’s artists out there that paint with embroidery, I don’t know if you’ve seen them, but it looks amazing! They stitch portraits and landscapes, some in hoops and others framed like canvases. 😊
