I painted the parrot above but the bird below was taken from a greetings card. The vintage image was from a cookery book, I gave it a bit of colour with paint.

Monday, 22 May 2017
I'm still trying to have a good sort out and I came across another folder containing samples from my City and Guilds Embroidery course. Recycle somehow or bin?
One of the first things we had to do was collect white threads in different textures and thicknesses [I've still got some of these threads!] Above is a sampler of Cretan stitch
This one is chain stitch
And this one is straight stitch
The three samples on canvas are Florentine embroidery
Greetings card with hand painted fabric and embroidery
Detached filling stitches
I've also got quilting samples which I'll show some other time.
