Needlelace Chicken

I have finished the chicken for the needlelace class at the Embroiderer’s Guild. Assessment is early November, so I am in plenty of time. I am very happy with my little chicken. Since she is the first there are things that I will do differently when I make another, but that is the design process, always tweaking. She went for a little trip into the garden for the photo shoot.

Needlelace Class

Yesterday was the last class in needlelace at the Embroiderer’s Guild. We have assessment in early November, a few weeks away. In the lesson yesterday we did a hedebo shape with bars, the first photo. And then we worked stitches onto netting, something I have wanted to have a try of, so it was quite fun. Not the easiest thing to photograph, especially when I have used a light and dark thread.
