A partially stitched silk panel, the next piece in this puzzle. There is more embroidery needed on this surface but I am itching to make a pocket, positively straining at the leash. I will have to contain myself a little longer though.
The pattern here is hand drawn, hand doodled onto silk Dupion......large petals, floral shapes which are then embellished with French knots and chain stitch. Once the surface embroidery is complete I will attach it to the main piece and have a lot of fun playing with the seam. I will also then be able to scratch my pocket itch!!
