A bit off this and that today. 'This' being the paper based idea we are working on in 'embroidery school' and 'that' being my large embroidered silk panel which you have been seeing a lot of lately.
The paper based piece has a little more work since you last saw it, specifically it has outlines....I think they make such a difference aesthetically whilst at the same time clarifying, indicating boundaries, shape, outer edges.
The embroidered panel has more embellishment, more areas of interest. I think it's safe to say I now know what is needed to finish this. Each motif and stitch area required is now decided it's just a case of me cracking on.
