But first……my day began in the kitchen with a batch of sourdough craisin pecan bread. Follow the link to the long-ago post that has the recipe. Then, I was able to get back to my little vintage project and all that micro-stippling needed. The next 2 photos give you a feel for what those tiny stitches add to the “look”….. without and with……. The embroidery is beautifully lifted above the background! Texture!!!! Yay!!!
Just to give you a bit of size perspective.. insert 1 dime! In the last photo, above, you can see the contrast of the un-stippled areas (upper and left edges) and the rest of the piece. I do have an idea for the border stitching and edge finish. Stay tuned. Have an awesome weekend…………….
