The Head “Whooo HOOOO!

Pufff……I definitely was nervous about doing the head….but as always muddled on….there was long and short stitch of which I have done little of in the past 6 months so you end up learning all over again…never ever be shy about going to your reference books or the internet to find some help….I type in crazy questions in the search box and what a help always….! A simple example would be  “Help me learn satin hand embroidery stitching?” and up comes lots of links as well as images/videos etc. Thankfully you can find just about any answer you need for the project your doing….

 Back to the head….also there is satin stitching..the beak and eye…split stitching around the outside of the eye..a couple of cute small french knots for the nostrils…I do believe the head came out just fine…..even for all my nervousness….at least Nicola loved him….(she always referred to it as a “Him”…..) After all this you should be able to tell what this crewelwork piece is………….

I will have a whole reveal of the project later on….meantime enjoy! 

Love to hear comments...thanks!
