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!
