It doesn't have a name, it's just done. It still needs to be blocked but that will wait until I find something to do with it. I am thinking that it may make it's way into a tote bag some day.
This is my favorite kind of embroidery. I love using the silk and cotton threads and I like that it goes fast!
I purchased this kit in London in either 2002 or 2003. I suppose it's about time I got it done!
Next I will start an appliqué project. I haven't really done any appliqué before. I'm going to start with some blocks from Deb Levy's Go! Garden. So, I have a couple of question for the experienced appliquers out there.
1. Do you match your thread color to the appliqué or to the background? I just know you are going to say appliqué because that will require me to haul around a lot more thread!2. I have 2 threads to choose from (because I'm not going to buy special thread for this). Do you recommend that I use Masterpiece (cotton) or Bottom Line (poly). I am NOT a cotton purist. I just care about which thread will be easiest and give me the best results.
