Not Done Yet
Oh my word. On Wednesday I discovered that there was yet another procedure to be done on my Schwalm embroidery. The grids that I had created had to be filled in using woven stitches in a variety of patterns. I worked manically all day yesterday and this morning to get it done. I periodically sent a photo off to my teacher to get her opinion and advice, a system that worked surprisingly well. Long distance embroidery tuition, thanks Whatsapp! On Wednesday Corlie told me how to prepare the piece for presentation. I've just put the last stitch into the material backing. My final step will be to make a 100 km (60 mile) trip this afternoon to deliver it. Phew.
