Learning to Layer

I’ve been working on my hydrangea embroidery quietly – mostly in my lunch breaks at work. Trying to decide how to draw / paint in stitch I’ve been experimenting with layering simple stitches. The first layer of small running stitches was inspired by looking at the amazing Japanese cloths in the recent Boro exhibition at Somerset House.

On top of that I’ve put single strands of purple and French knots. It seems to be working rather well even if I am making it up as I go along!!

Ps I can’t believe it’s only a week since I got back from Portugal ….. Seems like a world away…..
