Last week I eventually spent some of my Christmas money on the book by Effie Mitrofanis on Needleweaving . I do want to try something in her style. However I needed to follow Bage's very structured instructions on at least one piece first - this is what I did.
A simple piece based on the centre of a bell pull design from her book on Drawn Thread.
This time I started with guide lines - this took some time but was certainly time well spent, providing checks along the way.
I like the serpentine (zigzag - ) hemstitched section while the foursided stitch provides a nice contrast.
A four inch square provides a lovely size for a pincushion top - now I only need to make the bottom.
