I took a small workshop on long and short stitch thread painting in the Fall and started this project during the class, and finally finished it.  I am in love with the technique, even though it is quite time intensive.  I am very happy with how it turned out, and am keeping it for me me me.








I am so happy to have learned this to improve and add to my techniques/knowledge, and am looking forward to trying something else with it - it felt very meditative to work on this project.

Comments/constructive criticism always welcome.

Here is a bit more about it on my blog

Well, here is my criticizm...it should be at my house!!!! Grin What a wonderful intricate piece. If I created it, I would keep it for me me me, too. Great job, and so happy that you are learning a new skill. I can bet that it took you a long time. Those stitches, and the color blends? Very pretty.

Idea? Next one...blue bird. I bet you could do a good feather job with that project. The peach chest, and blue feathers. They would be wonderful with this technique. Just a thought. I will be rocking you.

That's funny - I was thinking of something blue as well... I was thinking maybe a blue flower again, but I do love birds - so I will definitely keep that it mind!  It did take a long time, but it did not feel long.  I probably could have thrown more stitches in for even more blending, but then there are times when I get fearful that fiddling with it too much may ruin it, kwim?  But I found that I could do a petal in about a 1 hour time span, so I often did it while watching TV with DH.
