Paisley Embroidery Update




These three photos show the finished Paisley embroidery for the Silk Town Stitchers I decided to fill in the paisley shape with seed stitch, which I feel holds the shape together. The close up of the tail shows clearly the subtle effect created.
The last photo details the variety of stitch and embellishment I used from the delicacy of the lilac organza to the solid effect of chain stitch in the purple metallic thread. If you click on any of the images you can see the stitches in detail.
