Hey all, I thought I'd share my first completed embroidery inspired by artwork made by Scott Derby. This piece took me ages to complete as I spent most of my time debating to bin it for lack of 'perfection'. Tell me does that feeling ever go away or am I likely to nit pick forever?!


No complicated stitches used, split stitch, back stitch, seed etc. As I really need to get the basics down first.

Anyway hope you like it Smiley x

Funny, I don't remember being absentminded...

I need a skein (two would be great) of Knit Picks Gloss Bare sock weight to finish a shawl.

I think it looks great!  I've been doing embroidery for years and your satin stitch looks much better than mine.  And yes, you will always be your own worst critic.
