new silk shading sample

I teach silk shading or Long and Short stitch quite a lot around the country so every so often I get board with my sample and have to stitch a new one. This time I have tried to make the design a touch more modern but still have all the elements that the students need to learn, and have a nice looking piece of work to take home. I will be teaching this new design first in Whakatane, NZ in May

 All worked in 1 strand of a stranded cotton, the background is tea dyed silk.
