RSN Diploma: Blackwork embroidery week 2

A slow week for week two, I think I was quite intimidated by the blank canvas!

Having done a bit of sampling, I worked with my tutors to pick the patterns I’d like to use, then it was just a case of picking an area and getting started. With this technique there’s a lot of grey scale and a lot of interpretation, not a lot of right and wrong for the moment. I think my scientific brain is up to the counting and precision needed for the stitches, but might struggle with the nuances.. It’s a work in progress so we shall see!

For homework I’m doing more practising in blending different stitches, hopefully this will give me some confidence..

I think it’s one of those times that I’m standing on the edge off a cliff – I just need those 20 seconds of courage to take the leap!
