Finally back to your tutorials, hopefully the routine will be correct next week.
As a refresher, we were working on a felted and embellished beach scene using lutradur
I usually start at the top or the furthest away part of my scene.
Prior to embroidering, I test out the threads I have selected for suitability.
I used a wide zig zag and moved side to side in a diagonal fashion. This is very like stem stitch, which was covered in my machine embroidery stitch lessons.
Next, I moved on to the sea. I know the distant headland is next down, but it will be dealt with when I do the rocks, later.
Here is my colour sample for this section.
Again, my choice was the ombre for the water, not because of any colour change in the water, but because it will give the water depth.
granite stitch, and a bit of scribbly stippling thrown in. I did not work over the grey and brown areas. These will be done next in the next post, tomorrow and I will spend the evening picking out the beads for the sandy area.
Good to be back!.
