Two ladies and a whole lotta wool
I’m on a craft roll. That does sound like it should be a delightful dessert, however it’s simply referring to my recent desire to keep on crafting.
Today I’ve had a go at embroidery. It’s not actually my first ever attempt, but it’s the first one this year – so the title of this blog still stands.
I like birds. I don’t mind admitting it, and I’ve had a go a drawing some with reasonable results. So, given I wasn’t cross-stitching but was free-styling (also known as: drawing design to be embroidered straight on the fabric) I decided to try and embroider a sketch of a bird.
Now, much of the success of this is going to land on the quality of the original drawing. But there is also something to be said for techniques – I was struggling in my inexperience to do shading, some detail and also filling in. So some of these things look a little messy.
Here is the progress so far:
I want to add some other detail around the bird; maybe some writing or possibly some beading, I’m not sure yet. Will post any further pictures if I work on it further.
I think the next course I’ll do will be an embroidery one; I need to learn me some skills in this I reckon.
