'Summer Evening,' Seasons in Longstitch Evening Scenes Collection by Derwentwater Designs
Completed with provided materials
I can admit I'm quite pleased with it. It's not really perfect and was very confusing in places! The design hadn't been printed quite straight on the fabric and it was sometimes hard to tell where to stitch. . . . but I did it and I can cross one of my goals for the year off the list!!
It was so fast in comparison to cross stitch and other embroidery that I can really see the attraction, I'm sure I'll be doing a few more in future. This one I've backed with plain interfacing to protect the stitching. I would have framed it but it is going to a relative who is visiting from overseas, so will stay in this unadorned state for easy packing.
Have you ever done any long stitch or similar embroidery before? How did you find it?
That's all for now,
