Finally felt ready to tackle the problem with the stitching on my canvas work piece and so spent over an hour carefully removing the stitching that had taken me a whole day to put in!
It is always at this point that I wonder whether or not I have done the right thing, but there was no turning back now. The tutors suggested that I replace the original stitching with a twill stitch which did go in a little quicker and give a better coverage of the canvas. The only thing that I am unsure about is the shading as the stitch is much bigger! So now the face looks like this…..
And here is an overall picture of the whole canvas…
So now I have to await my next visit to Hampton Court – hopefully all the tutors will now agree as I don’t think I could take it out again!
Happy stitching everyone!
