These are my latest stitches,  both Bristol (UK based).  Painting the background and then embroidering over the top is a new technique for me.  Ive always had a tendency to fill everything in, but this makes the details quite hard to spot.  By painting the background it means I can concentrate on those details and Im really happy with the result. 

The first is this embroidery of an altered pedestrian Crossing on Park Street Bristol



The second is a detail of a particularly fine pub/hotel in Old Market Bristol.  I really liked the carvings on this one and, although Ive had to use a bit of creative license, I am very happy with the result.



Do let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions of how I can improve (bearing in mind Im not the best painter!).

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
