30 Shades of Flesh
So having recently finished my Synchronous Hermaphrodites embroideries which I’ve been working on for the last six months I’ve spent finally gotten around to making a start on a new project.
Up until now I have predominantly worked with a split stitch in my embroideries. However this new project will be cross stitch based. It’s a classic stitch that has been used to produce embroidered samplers for centuries. I’ve been having a little practice with cross stitches over the last couple of weeks which resulted in this embroidered periodic table.
This new work should be a challenge as I’ll be working with a much wider variety of colours than I have done in my embroidered work to date. I’m making a start today with 30 shades of flesh coloured threads as pictured above.
