Rope

My embroidery was inspired by Anneliese’s beautiful photo. The background is stitched in chicken scratch and cross stitch after trying some chicken scratch variation on this sampler. The ropes are stitched in a mix of chain stitch variations, Portuguese stem stitch, couching and French knots. I made the last stitches in November last year. It was very wrinkled and I couldn’t get it right. So it was hidden in my cupboard until last week. After all the good damp stretching results on my blocks for Karen’s class embroider, embellish, create I thought it would help this embroidery too. And it did, all wrinkles are gone!
There’s a bigger photo of this embroidery on my Flickr page.
