Light…… by 2.30pm my natural light has all but gone in the studio and goldwork by lamp light is hard on the eyes.
Roll on the solstice!
So, to the second hare.
Building up the spirals on front and back legs.
Plunging the thicker thread through to the back and then couching in place.
Then to outlining the hare, this time I “fused” the front and back legs - will make the appliqué much easier later on.
And happiness DID lie within - a cup of hot coffee for a cold embroiderer!
Creating roses …. step by step….
You can see the light fading as I worked, so I apologise for the photos in advance.
