Work in Progress Wednesday

work in progress for seaside embroidered panelI have a bit of a work in progress report. I have not pieced my hussif (as getting out he sewing machine at the moment is a bit difficult)  but stitch addict that I am, I could not live without having something on the go. I did pull out 25 count light walnut coloured linen and then I thought about the seaside. Next I remembered the flotsam on the seashore  and before I knew it I had this design worked out.

I have started the heavily textured stitches in the area near the flip flops. This type of stitchery will run diagonally under them and diagonally under the shells too. Other areas will have pulled thread embroidery. I have yet to decide what I am doing with the border. It will be a small wall panel or I will simply add it to my sampler I am not sure yet. I set the tape measure against it so readers have a sense of the scale. So almost by accident I have started an other project!

If you click on the panel you will see a larger version of it.

What have you done this week towards your stitching goals?

  1. Hi Sharon! This week has been a lesson on the reasons one should not rush! In my haste, I forgot to link up with my post on Wednesday. I hurried to fix that this morning. I thought I was leaving a comment here, but must have clicked on the photo of your lovely seascape piece and accidentally left my message there (feel free to delete that one!)

    I managed some progress on my cross-stitch this week. http://monkeyandmutt.blogspot.com/2014/11/wip-wednesday-11122014.html

  2. What a super piece. I especially like the flip-flops (slip-slops). The colours that you have used so far give a real sense of tranquility and the soft murmuring of the small waves on the beach. The dark patches of stones and the flotsam just add that extra ‘zing’.

  3. I hit the comment button too quickly,
    I meant to say Sharon, that your panel is already looking so interesting and will be something I look forward to seeing develop.

  4. Gosh! That’s quite a piece! Looking forward to seeing it as it develops more.

    I’ve done absolutely zero this last week as I’ve spent most of it in bed. Today I started another baby knit (and decided to start knitting for the Premature Baby Unit next so I can learn more and enjoy the process without needing a friend to have a baby or to make garments in ever increasing sizes!!!), but I’ll post about that on Sunday.
