Embroidery

Finished canvaswork, etc.

So, I finished my first-ever canvaswork that I’ve been posting about the last couple days:

As I mentioned before, this is the first design in Carolyn Mitchell‘s “Have a Drink on Me,” which is subtitled “Hot Cocoa.”

The set was inspired by coffee, but I don’t drink coffee, and I know I’ll be doing tropical colours in my new house, so I opted to swap ocean colours.

DMC Perle Cotton #5 in: 504, 992, 991, and 3072
DMC Perle Cotton #8 in: 991
Kreinik 1/16″ flat ribbon in 006 (in other designs I will also be using #12 Tapestry braid in the same colour).

And it was stitched on white mono canvas in 18 count.

Can’t wait to stitch the next one, but it’s gonna have to wait until next week.

Aside from the canvaswork, I also picked up Blackbird Designs’ “Yellow Submarine”:
