Tiny Needle Tuesday

The main project I worked on in Colorado was this folk art embroidery based on a drawing I made.

I'm very happy with the way it turned out. I used mostly DMC size 5 perl cotton, but I added some details with size 8.

Now I just have to decide if I'm going to finish it by stapling it around an 8x8 frame or making the center panel in an art quilt. So many decisions!

  1. What a beautiful piece!! I love it. You are so creative and so talented. I have used both #5 and #8 perle cotton for Hardanger projects, but have never "embroidered" with it. How was it to work with compared with regular floss? And what type of fabric did you use?

  7. I love it!!! I've tried so many times to master that type of embroidery but mine always looks so sloppy. You really have to have good eyes and a steady hand of which I have neither...lol.

  8. So, very pretty! It really pops with the thicker DMC thread. It will look good wherever you use it!
