Quicky project

So, as many know, I visited a friend of mine in Wyoming for the first time and at the suggestion of my Mother, I took a gift along. I decided with a piece of linen a friend picked up for me, to make him a hanky (pictured above) embroidered with his last name initial. I washed and dried the fabric so that the sizing was removed and the weave shrunk down. I used white silk embroidery thread.
The stitches I decided to use were satin and split stitch, french knots and a cross stitch pattern.

I am very pleased with how it turned out and my friend loved it.

Now that Pennsic is over, I am finishing a few more commission items and then jumping on the "embroider all the things for me" bandwagon.

More to come....STAY TUNED!!!
