My Logo . . .

Stage 1 - felt applied and long and short stitch started
Stage 2 - Shading into the long and short stitch

Stage 3 - Detailed shot of shading
Now back after house moving for three months, and working on a small commission, working my logo for a customer - my silk and gold cross.

So you will see all the details I work through to complete my logo starting with applying the felt padding, followed by the long and short shading, also known as silk shading.

The design is worked on a fine linen fabric, worked with Stranded cotton threads, with the design size being roughly 5cm square or 2 inches.  

The photographs are very magnified, and show the work in bigger detail making the technique look coarser than it actually is.

More to come . . .


  1. Funny, I was just thinking about you this morning and whether or not I'd see you at the Harrogate Show in 3 weeks'....=)

    Looking forward to seeing the goldwork part. It's a lovely logo.

    1. Hi Elizabeth,

      Yes, I will be there on the STITCHBUSINESS stand - promoting our City & Guilds centre - stand E4 in the basement - I think it is.

      See you there - I may take some stitching to do!
