Last Friday I was sorting through some of my work when I pulled out the piece I started for my Sun Printing Project. I really like the colours in this piece and I have been missing embroidery so much I thought I would give it a go again and see how my fingers hold up! I started adding some more texture first and then thought I would add some stylised butterflies and other insects to break up the green. I worked on the butterfly yesterday and the stitching doesn't look too bad! My fingers feel a bit more sore and stiff today and I kept getting pains in the back of my hands while I was stitching but it was worth it. I think I just have to get used to it again so I'm going to keep working on this piece until its finished. The photos below show the different stages of the butterfly.
