Oh! Embroidered 3 finished :)

Oh number 3, you were a lot of work... 
I wanted you to have the density of a tapestry, but of a different feel... 

silken papery threads woven into a paper cousin; fibre held together by fibre. 

I dreamed of how you would turn out with each stitch... 

I wanted you to be a smooth, even texture that pops out from its surface like a sculpture
... and now you're finished!

Oh! Embroidered 3 is in my big cartel shop :)

Stitchery in progress

My day job has been taking most of my time lately so it's been "slowly slowly" with the 
progress on my new piece... grabbing a minute here and a minute there when I can.

I wanted to achieve more of a tapestry look this time... heavier but still with bare peeks 
of canvas showing through to throw the design into relief :)

As always, when I'm getting close to the finishing post, I hesitate more and more over each 
stitch, not wanting to go too far... and spend an inordinate amount of time looking at the back 
of the work ;)

Hope you're having a good week :)
