|detail of stitch and the working needle|
I have continued a little progress with my piece for the North East Embroiderers' Guild regional exhibition celebrating the Lindisfarne Gospels coming to Durham city this summer. I decided to work burden stitch which has a weaving quality about it and thought it worked quite well. I used some old silk threads I had and outlined with gold couching. I wanted the blue area to have a different look to the red area which is very open silk shading with curled couching.
The exhibition will be held in Durham Cathedral from 27th May to 23th June.
