One of my interests is calligraphy, and another is embroidery. I also like cushions. What better than to combine the three in one project!
I also had on hand some thick, tea towel cotton that has quite a pronounced weave to it that I decided to use for the other side.
With a rather nebulous idea, I started to draw on the fabric using a blue, water soluble ink pen. ( I love that pen, it has come in handy for so many things)
To draw a circle, I have various sizes of inexpensive embroidery hoops,
The stitches used are mainly
backstitching, to outline all the lines inside the two circles
Chain stitch to make a heavier line for the circles
French Knots to add accents on the flowers
I thought about stitching a pattern on the H, but I am pretty much out of this thread.
Time to sew up the cushion now!
