Day 70 : Bamboo
Well, I have to be honest, this isn't really what I had in my head - although if you were to look at my initial sketch, it is really close! I wanted to incorporate sheer layers to look a bit watery - which doesn't make much sense I know - and that did not work and I cut it away. Ah well.
I've used the variegated No 12 perle for the leaves. It shows what variegated threads are really good at. Underneath all that padding (there's a few layers) is a No 3 mould.
The thumb is improving slowly, and I'm thinking I might try a wrapped button again at the weekend... just in case you are all getting tired of embroidery :)
