I'm trying some sumptuous surface embroidery a la Sharon Boggon. I'm working on a panel of 3, and am part way through. Each piece is only 3" x 1.5 ". The design is worked up from some of my shell sketches from Karen Ruane's Alchemy Class earlier in the year. My journal sketches and notes are proving useful. This is deliberately quite monochromatic. I think its looking quite chunky, but I'm hoping I'll be able to fix that with more layers of stitching in finer threads.

  1. I love the colour scheme. Yes, some finer work mixed it will really enhance it. Fun to hand stitch, isn't it?
