I chose to work on another embroidery project that has a few more challenges to it than the last piece. On this one I will have to work a face. A rather small face, As you will see below the face needs to be filled in before the eyes, nose, mouth details are put on.
The back ground on this is a two tone silk, I lucked out a few days ago and a lampshade store downtown listed a brown paper bag of silk scraps for free, OF course I jumped on it!!!! I was so thrilled when I got home and discovered that most of the pieces are large enough to embroider on and still have scraps left for a crazy quilt!
Anyway I am using DMC, Anchor, Finca 6strand, Finca Presencia, A Ver a Soie in six strand, 100/3, Perlee, and a Metallic from them called "Bijoux" that is wonderful to work with! I have also used ribbon from HDF, and some Kreinik size 4 and 16 in silver.
