2nd Embroidery

   When I got home with my new supplies I knew I wanted to do something right away. I started searching for reference on flowers and nature. I wanted to do something simple but cute so I decided I wanted a flower and a butterfly. This is what I came up with.

   I drew this on white linen, then I selected a few floss colors, some were DMC and some were Prism. Then I proceeded to embroider in a organic way, I just let the lines of the drawing tell me what stitches should be used.

   This is how it turned out after I damped the fabric to take off the water erasable pen. I loved doing this a lot so get ready to see more embroidery in this blog. The outer fabric is tucked below the hoop that's why you can see shadows on the fabric.

  2. Wow, Yadira, I think you've got a gift. I can't believe you're just learning to do this. The use of different sized & style stitches to define the work is great.
