Hi everyone, sorry I am posting so late but it has been a busy weekend of visiting friends and relatives. Another 3 weeks has whizzed past and I have done nothing on my SAL sewing project. Instead I am working on a beautiful goldwork robin that has been designed by Georgina Bellamy of That Embroidery Girl. Here is her sample piece..
I attended a one day workshop that she was running. During the day I managed to get all the padding work completed. The next step was to outline the body, wings and tail with pearl purl. A bead was added for the eye and a beak sewn together out of black felt. Then for the fun – I could start to add the smooth and rough purls. Here is where I am up to (and as this is now in my embroidery hoop, I intend to finish this before going back to my little blue wren).
The robin is meant to hang as a tree decoration, but I think I might add mine to the front of a Christmas stocking – I think it will work very well.
Thank you for popping in. Happy stitching and I hope to see you all in another 3 weeks.
