Further work on Nicola Jarvis's crewel work design with the deadline now looming!  This time I have included more detail on the small red leaves with stem stitch and a blue vein. Satin stitch worked over split stitch, almost completing that section of the design using another autumnal colour.

crewel work progress . . .

more progress . . . 
working on more Bayeux stitch around the berries
After a heavy month or two of other work, I have now returned to the crewel work needed for Nicola Jarvis's exhibition at the William Morris Gallery - "The Art of Embroidery".  

I have worked further on the Bayeux stitch around the berries, but as yet, I have not put in the holding lines or stitches.
