I have finally finished this embroidery. Several weeks of work, a lot of moving the hoop from section to section and eventually it was complete. I am pleased with the end result and I plan to hide it away for a few weeks and then run a very critical eye over it before I stretch then frame it
I recorded each stage and I now have a page on my website where anyone interested in the whole process can see all the stages. The link is also on my home page.
