I have finished my name panel for Brown Owls.
I started with Faraway in chain stitch just to get in the mode. Not terribly happy with my stitching but much happier with my stem stitch (if that's the right term) on my name. Looks a little dull but green is one of my favourite colours so green it had to be!
Ahem, yes, unironed. Thanks for noticing.
I have also started on the Word Book sampler. I appreciated so many of your suggestions and decided to go with a pink iron transfer pencil and embroidered in red. So it's a redwork reference and also covers the pink lines.
The linen cloth has a machine embroidered flower on the other end that I will cut off and hem to make a tea towel. The cloth is huge so even with the trimming will make a nice big tea towel.
The linen weave is quite open and I'm finding the stitching a little wonky in places. I probably should have gone with some stabilising. But never mind. It's all a learning experience!
