Embroidery progress..slow but sure...

I promised to show you my (slow) progress today on my piece of Raised Embroidery that we are working on as a small project at Embroiderers' Guild. If you missed the previous post on this you can read it here. I have two flowers left to go, both at the bottom, then 3 tiny critters - an inchworm (padded satin stitch), a Snail (bullions) and a little bumbley bee(bullions). I am enjoying this piece, especially the learning of new stitches. My progress since last time includes leaves in raised backstitch, fishbone and closed fly stitch and the pink flowers in raised backstitch. The raised backstitch is not hard once you catch on, but I must admit, I struggled with the first few leaves and took them out or at least back a ways until I was satisfied with the look... After Choir tonight, I hope to get a little more done as I am now anxious to get this completed and on to something else... like a piece of canvaswork I started a while back... I'll show you this again when it is all finished.. soon I hope..
Next.... Blueberries and Cream....
Piece,
Linda
I need therapy, and stitching is cheaper than a psychiatrist!

So beautiful...You may inspire me back to handwork yet (that is after the sequining that I have taken on is finished)
