My first creature :-)


This is a "sketch" for the linen tablecloth. It's a fairy tale creature embroidered in linen and outlined in silk. The linen embroidery is done in "versetzter Gobelinstich" and the silk is a runing stitch. It's 14 x 10 cm, and I think that is more or less the size of the figures in the original tablecloth. This sketch is done in unbleached linen DMC floss and unbleached linen fabric, but I ordered off white linen for the final project, because I think that is more suitable. I posted some technical details here. I'm glad that this project finally seems to be going somewhere :-)
