Looks much better using coloured fabric.
a creative desk!
Next year I am teaching a creative class where we will be playing with traditional embroidery stitches and seeing what happens. I have to do some sample pieces so the students know the kind of thing they could do. This is my first one, I love it, only using feather stitch with different thicknesses of thread, stranded cotton and sewing thread. I am going to do another one with the background covered with stitch and the image left blank.
