Needlepoint Progress



Could it be possible that I have yet another sewing project on the go?  This one should be over pretty quickly though, as although it is sewn on 72 hpi silk gauze, I find that it is much smoother and easier to work with than the cotton 85 hpi I usually use.

The firescreen was a present from Elga, (thank you Elga!) and I finished it with a dark oak stain and a thin layer of satin varnish. 

The hunting scene is destined for the hall, I think it is 'manly' enough for the master of the house, don't you?

  2. Pleasure Jonquil, I love your hunting scene!

    Silk gauze is lovely to stitch on, I am busy experimenting with on 90 count gauze for the caskets and I am loving it.

  6. A lovely design Jonquil, I love the little landscape. How fast you work! I have a firescreen I have been working on for a long time now (a kit), also 72 dpi, but I find it very difficult to work as I can hardly find the holes.

    Nice gift Elga gave you! Your embroidery will be perfect for it.
