More embroidery was added to my crazy quilt block last night. There is something about watching Project Runway that gets me inspired to sew.
I love the free form silk ribbon branch at the bottom left, but it doesn’t flow very well into the crewel embroidery. This picture isn’t terrific, but I did use some of the same color floss used in the crewel leaves to shade the silk ribbon. Something needs to be added to that area, but I’ve smack dab run out of ideas. Any suggestions would be deeply appreciated.
An additional seam treatment was added too. Light yellow silk ribbon was folded and held in place by lavender floral shaped buttons. They have a touch of gold on them. The top portion of the seam is a lazy daisy stitch with an opaque beadlette used for the center stitch and my hand dyed silk thread in shades of blue for the rest of the stitching.
3 weeks of embroidery and 3 more to go. The class was 6 weeks long and I want to see what I can accomplish in the same time frame.
