Pile 'em On
I parked a few stray thread ends in the circle and worked more pulled stitches in the 'flames' going out from the circle.
TASTy Beads Galore
This time I used TAST #98 Beaded Shell Chain to stitch the stem and the flowers.
This project is now completed.
First let me show you details of the latest wool embroidery. The fabric is a beautiful wool crepe that has been a delight to stitch.
From that embroidered fabric I then constructed a special waistcoat, called chanchan-ko'. Mine is a modern version.
Or it might be seen as a warning sign - here comes someone who is a bit gaga, do odd things and must be given leeway...
However old I've grown, I hope I will be given plenty of odd, gaga leeway in my future embroidery projects, and I have no intention of letting anyone take over my needlework, responsibilities of my sharp scissors or power over my stitching fingers.
I am also so pleased that my chanchan-ko goes well with the collar and cuffs completed earlier.
