* embroidered treelet

Posted on October 10th, 2004 by maitreya. Filed under Cross Stitch/Embroidery.


I’m practising my embroidery and trying out colors before I add anything to my apron. I like the way my test treelet (design from the Jill Bliss and Shinpei book of the same name, see previous post) turned out, but I think I may go for something simpler for the apron. Lots of little threads to be pulled out in this one. There are some nice simple tree shapes in the book, so maybe I’ll try those next. What to do with this little scrap? Make a patch or something?

    Hi–
    You did a great job with the Jill Bliss tree. Another book that has charming trees to imitate in embroidery is “Mrs. Kennedy Goes Abroad”
