Running a little late, thanks to a sunny holiday (sorry!) – none of the stitching I took along was touched. But yes, I’ve kept this latest weekly sample project going for half a year now!
Week 23: Prickly alcyonarian coral
Machine embroidery using built-in pattern in ombre thread.
Week 24: Scarlet sea fan
Synthetic organza machine stitched over black cotton then burned away with a soldering iron.
Week 25: Blotched puffer fish
It was a ball of spines! Machine stitched on dissolvable fabric (shown against separate black background).
Week 26: Gorgonian coral
Red felt embellished onto pink, hand embroidery.
