I haven’t had an update on the embroidery for awhile because I was working on the green squiggly bits. While I’m happy with how they came out, they weren’t really worth photographing on their own. They don’t even look that great now but they’re a good framework for supporting the other parts.
I learned a couple new stitches and I like how the little pink flowers came out. Except for on the first flower I did, I used a pistil stitch for the center bits (which is just a variation of the french knot)
The grapes have some subtle shading which ended up more subtle than I intended. I wasn’t thrilled with how the wheat was turning out when looking at it in person. However, seeing it here I think the center accent is doing it’s job nicely.
The more I get done, the more daunting the entire project becomes. But someday it’ll be done and I’ll go headfirst into something else crazy. In the meantime I have about 4 other projects to keep me distracted when this becomes too frustrating. Oh, and there’s the stuff I should be doing, like med school applications, but whatever.
