Just got this piece finished today. Layered in strips of fabric, with some flowers cut out from a japanese silk kimono offcut I bought off Ebay. Not too much hand stitching, but did use that split back stitch that Jude Hill likes to use and I too like the effect of it.
Will sit and look at it for a day or two to be sure it doesnt need anything else.
Do you folks do that too I wonder?
Oh and here's the pedlar woman, too ugly to be in Larkrise or Candleford mind you! Maybe I should redo her face but I figured she'd had a hard life lol
