Hi Suz, Have sewn the peacock and I am really pleased with it. As I love silk this has been sewn on silk. I used the old method of lining up designs with the basting stitched lines directly on the silk. A few changes to thread colours also as I just used what I had here; so he’s a special ‘hybrid’ bird!
Thank you for such lovely designs.
The way you have finished this embroidery, Colleen, makes it look so rich! This set, done in November of 2008 was the first large design I split and put together using the BFC Method. So many people have done our large designs successfully! And they report the process is really easy. Suz
