The other Jacobean embroidery project – there are two! – Latest Embroidery

Personally, I don’t like sewing two similar embroidery projects at the same time. Sometimes I do this so I can fix bugs or try different materials with the same design.

Indeed there is two Versions of my current Jacobean piece are in progress.

Exactly lovely– I don’t embroider the second one for me. Anna (my niece) is.

I suspect Anna will show me. She is determined to solve problems and do things “just right”, and I have admittedly lost that kind of obsessive persistence for meticulous detail with my embroidery over the years.

Part of this has to do with the fact that she is a newcomer and has not developed the trust that is normally associated with years of experience in some kind of craft.

This is her first embroidery project of this kind. She has done a lot of what I would call “casual” embroidery. Flour sack of towels. A couple of mine Snowflake Christmas decorations. She also did a little cross stitch and she sews clothes and stuff. So she knows a needle, but has never made a more complex surface embroidery piece for the presentation from start to finish and made her own decisions.

I am happy to say that she has enjoyed the adventure so far. And she’s damn good at finding out things. Stitch selection, color placement – that’s entirely up to her.

It is a good experiment for both of us, as I see quite clearly how effectively the design can be interpreted by others who are concerned. And she can enjoy what I call “puzzle fun”, figuring things out, making her own decisions, and getting that little thrill when she sees it it worked.

Anna’s project is slightly different from mine. The design is a variation. The materials are different.

She works on a 30-count natural-colored linen (called “sunflower seed”) with cotton embroidery threads.

Most of the time she works with two strands of DMC cotton, although the lattice work here is one strand.

The stitches she has used so far: chainstitch on a stick, stemstitch filling, padded satin with a grid worked on it and pearl chainstitch.

The color scheme is more or less the same. After pulling all the silks for the original Jacobean design, we pulled matching cotton. We also pulled some colored cotton – I think there are also some House of Embroidery pearl cotton in the group.

We share the pearls.

It will be interesting to see how different the two designs look, with the different base material and the different thread types, although the colors are more or less the same.

When I pull threads and other materials for a project, I go into overkill mode for the colors and thread types, so I have a wide range to choose from. This does not mean that I will use them all.

When sewing, I write down the ones I use. At the end of the project, I then sorted out the colors, thread types, beads, etc. that I did not use, and made a final list of consumables for the project. For this reason, I do not publish the colors I drew here on the blog Now. I’m not quite sure what the cut will do!

I found that Anna particularly likes to add pearls. There’s a crow deep inside! She probably likes sparkle More if I.

Anna: I think I’ll work the whole thing in beads.

(Ok. Well. There is one little Direction continues.)

Me: “Use the pearls as accents for the embroidery. It is an embroidery project, not a pearl project. Also, imagine this design in massive beadwork. It could be a little too much, don’t you think? ”

Anna: Ok.

… (Quiet seams)

… (Quieter sewing)

Anna: “I think I’ll put all the pearl accents first.”

Me: “This is a little problematic. How do you know what they emphasize?”

Anna: “Well, I’m just going to focus on the beads and work on the embroidery around the beads.”

Me: “I understand. Instead, how about accenting the beads and embroidering first and adding beads later? “

Anna: I really like adding the pearls.

I well. You will be able to look forward to something! “

… (Quiet seams)

… (Quieter sewing)

Anna: Will it make a big difference if I do all the beads first?

Me: “Just wait for your embroidery threads to get caught on every pearl you sewn onto the surface of this thing.”

Anna: I never thought of that.

Me good. Now you have. Do what you want. “

… (Quiet seams)

… (Quieter sewing)

Anna: “I think I’ll embroider first.”

Me, hey! What a great idea!”

That’s how our talks go.

She does more or less what she wants. I don’t really care what she does, because she will find out everything herself and it will only take this one project to give her the confidence to do everything she wants with a needle and thread.

So that’s what is going on in my studio during the sewing sessions. It’s fun to get both projects going and have someone who discusses the pros and cons of what works and what doesn’t and why.

I will keep you updated on our progress! We really only have sewing lessons a couple of times a week at the moment and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s going to happen in the next one!

I hope your week started well!
