Some update on 3D Cottage Sal, the first part – Cottage Front is ready. There are 2 pictures here. The first presents the Cottage Front without back stitch, the next one – completed piece. So you can compare, how back stitch brings stitching to life.
Today I’ve started a new project 3D Cottage SAL by Durene Jones pattern, I bougt on lakesideneedlecraft site. The house is crocheting on a plastic canvas, which I had at home, threads as always DMC. So far only one photo from the very beginning, soon I will show the first part – cottage front. Durene Jones is one of my favourite designer, so I expecting a lot of fun and joy stitching this house. This is the first 3 D project and I hope not the last one.
There are some more parts of the lakesideneedlecraft Sal by Durene Jones design : 9th and 10th. Now I am working on 11th part and I hope to complete it next week.
A few weeks ago Kate Worthington announced that together with dizainer Lucie Heaton organize free Sal, which they called Furry Tales – Medieval Fun. Every Friday the members of the group received a pattern and after 7 weeks I can show you the finished stitching. It was a pleasure to stitch these wonderful creatures in the Medieval style. Very funny and cheerful, no matter who they are – a King, a Quenn, a Princess, a Knight, a Wizard or a Jester – they evoke a smile on everyone’s face. Here are some pictures of the process. DMC threads, Iridescent Evenweave 32 count.
In spring I embroidered Taurus painting from the Zodiac Signs series as a birthday present for my friend. I bought the diagram in the Etsy shop at Satsuma. The pattern is very clear, colours are wonderful, I enjoy each cross. Probably the Taurus on a black canvas would look better, but I already have problems with my eyes, for this I sew on the white evenweave with DMC thread. This is the result.
This was my first attempt to place the embroidery in the hoop and I must say that I am very pleased with the result. I watched a lot of tutorials how to do it on youtube and here are a few more photos of the back of this embroidery. I used white fetr to hide the back side of embroidery (unfortunately, I haven’t got an ideal back side of my cross stitich).
At the beginning of this year Kate Worthington organized another Sal, to which I immediately joined. Firstly, for the fact that the author of the pattern is Durene Jones and secondly, I love cats. A pattern of each part comes ones a a month , so I embroidered already 8 parts. Cats are awesome, as cats are used to. There are a few photos of them.
