I'm still searching for ideas for the contemporary embroidery challenge. My first idea came very quick and after that nothing popped up any more. I found some nice experiments online, I like this one! Now I'm looking again to things I made and found this lovely pillow. It was a kit and I know I had fun making this. The embroidery is done with cotton on canvas in different patterns. The chicken was printed on the canvas. The size is 30 x 30 cm (about 12 x 12 inch) and it's the only piece I ever made on canvas. I didn't keep the pattern, because I thought I could not use it any more! It didn't help getting the stitching going, but it was fun to look at it again.
