At my embroidery guild on Tuesday night, we learned a woven technique and worked on a little stitched piece - a woven vase with leaves and flowers. We were given a square of fabric and a card with all the necessary threads.
We then learned how to do the curled leaf and finally, the flower. It is basically the same technique as the leaf, but just rolled up and tacked down. If any of the fabric shows from underneath, just do a big French or colonial knot in the centre. That's what I did.
The time went quickly and we went away with the knowledge of how to finish this project at home.
This was Andra's. She had a slightly different colour palette than I did.
Jeanette added hers to our two for a photo.
I missed the March meeting but was given the kit so I could do the stitching on paper project - a bookmark.
Also, a few of us from the embroidery guild are going to do a cyber stitching class as a stitch along. It's a three-piece Hardanger project. We can sign up on May 1.
