While I was on the hunt for the above drawings I found this below, another half finished long abandoned sample. This was an odd request for a class that wished to do silk shading on canvas, not something that had been done before! But look it really works, I like the contrast between the squareness of the canvas stitches and the smooth silk shading, it's fun and maybe one day I will finish it!!!. It's worked on a 18 count canvas using stranded cotton, with Appleton's wool for the background. I would like to use stranded cotton for the new project and a 22 count canvas.
I often find that once I find a design I like, I then start looking at every thing just in case that will be a better design!!!!! So when the sun was shining today I darted out into the garden to hunt down lovely things, and as you see I did find some. But my garden will never be able to offer the beauties that we found at Great Comp.
I just need to purchase some canvas from Willow Fabrics and I can start.
