New Embroidery Project - Icicles
The above picture shows my fabric hooped and ready to start embroidering. After producing the initial sketch I drew straight onto the fabric with a soft pencil. I then decided to use silk paints to block in the main colours of the design then its just a matter of waiting for the paint to dry and choosing the colours and textures of embroidery threads I would use. As you can see from this image I have adjusted the colours from those used in my original sketch.
