Weeds in 6 strand embroidery


A little sampler with ideas for 6 strand embroidery floss.
Try different stitches to see how they look and make something at the same time.
I do not like to waste even the smallest stitchery piece.
The trick here was to use soft English country colors on linen.
It becomes a meadow.

And a beautiful meadow it is.

Love the lace too.

How beautiful and I can almost hear a skylark up above. Yes you've captured the meadow flowers in my mind. I retire from my job this Thursday and your post will go up on my project board as an idea to develope in my own way. I loved your "Art quilt for Beth" in Sew Somerset Winter 2010, on the same page spread as Kiwicarole (who has left a comment too)! You're two very creative artists.
