Welcome to this week's TGIFF link party where I am delighted to share my latest finish with you.
I shared some of my progress on the Shoreline embroidery with the new stitches that I have tried in my recent New to Me
post, so I am pleased to be able to share the whole embroidery with you as it is now finished (finally!).
The whole process of creating this piece has been a joy from start to finish and I have tried so many new techniques and stitches along the way.
I fell absolutely in love with the Spiders Web stitch, used to attach the button and sea glass above and also on its' own at the top left in blue.
There were lots and lots of French knots and quite a few buttonhole circles!
I had a lot of fun adding the buttons, pieces of sea glass and even the odd sequin to the embroidery as well as the shells I started out with.
Now I have to work out how to frame it!
Over to you now to link up your wonderful finishes this week. Share the celebrations by checking out your fellow finishers posts and give them a virtual pat on the back too :)
The amount of work put into this piece of art is amazing. There are so many French knots! Did you count how many you made? I love this piece.ReplyDelete
Thanks Robin, I didn't count the French knots but there are certainly more in this than in anything I have ever stitched before :)Delete
Wow - this is seriously really cool! Way to go!ReplyDelete
This is such a beautiful piece. This is something I could imagine wanting to work on myself, I can see why you enjoyed working on it so much.ReplyDelete
That is quite gorgeous (how big is it?) - I have no idea of how someone would frame an art piece like that!ReplyDelete
Wow! What a beautiful piece! Well done, and thanks for hosting this week!ReplyDelete

Absolutely stunning!!!! I never got the hang of French knots, but found colonial knots on the Internet and they rock for me! XxxxxxxxxReplyDelete
Your embroidered piece is amazing!!! It really looks like an under sea scene.ReplyDelete
This is such a fun piece! I've never really thought about putting sea glass on an embroidery piece before, but I love it :)ReplyDelete
Wow...such a lot of great stuff going on with this piece. Adding the button and sea glass...very interesting.ReplyDelete
That is stunning!ReplyDelete
Love it, Fiona!!! There's so much to look at - not something I normally say about embroidery. Hope you show us once it's framed.ReplyDelete
Really wonderful! It is lovely and I am not surprised you enjoyed making it.ReplyDelete
