As well as the embroidery techniques I've included on other pages, I have tried a number of other techniques including silk shading, split stitch and a variety of other stitches.
This was based on an image I saw of the Canterbury Cross.
The red infill was padded satin stitch in 2 strands of 60/2 silk, with gold #3 passing couched over the top to form the design. Gold purl pearl was couched around the outline of the cross. The centre of the cross, was gold kid, stitched over felt padding, with couched gold passing surrounding it, and couched gold purl pearl around the edge. The circular surround was coral stitch in 60/2 silk, with silver passing thread looped through to make a looped edging
I have done lots of different embroidered pouches and bags with Pelicans, as gifts. Here is a selection - some are done with split stitch, some are appliqued, some are stem stitch.
The pictures below were done as part of a couple of projects to create banners. They used a variety of techniques including split stitch, Bayeux tapestry stitch, chain stitch and back stitch
I made several pouches using ver similar techniques - an emblem done with Gobelin stitch, appliqued to a leather pouch, then surrounded by couched purl pearl - these are shown below.
This needlecase uses a mix of techniques. The strawberries are detached buttonhole stitch, padded with offcuts of the same thread used ofr the detached buttonhole. The stems are stem stitch. The leaves are picot stitch. The border at the top is a mix of cross-stitch and beading. The spine was creaed from lucet cord,, with beads woven in. The design is based on one from the "Stitches" magazine.
The following two pictures show a modern take on a sweetbag, based on a kit/course from the Royal School of Needlework
The images below show a variety of whitework projects - these are all designs from courses I have attended, or from magazines
