Another trip to Hampton Court and a little nearer to finishing (I hope!). I have been working on the halo towards the top of the picture. My tutor has suggested a uneven satin stitch effect. I am not sure if I like the stitch as I was wanting to use more of an interesting eyelet stitch. I also worry that after spending so much time colour matching the halo has a rather random colour theme.
You can see the random nature of the stitches in this close up. I have used ribbons, perle and a glittery embroidery thread.
The day started off wet, but as the afternoon went on the sun came out and I was able to get around the grounds of Hampton Court. The gardens are lovely at this time of year.
Thanks for popping by – Happy stitching everyone.
