Embroidery Sampler

I finally completed my sampler from lesson 2. This was a lot of fun. I used crewel wool to make the woven (whipped) wheels. These really stand up off the fabric! I used wool, pearl cotton 5, and 6 strands of floss for the fly and chain stitches. I used wool for the french knots. There are seed beads in the center of the wheels and a few trailed along also. I love to add sequins to my CQ. Here I used one strand of floss using straight stitches to hold down the sequins. I then wove around the spokes to create the center. I can see I will be having alot more fun with my sequins in the future!
I'm not too sure that I actually followed lesson 2 but I am off to read lesson 3 now. I don't want to get too far behind. And there is so much in each lesson I will be going back and forth for some time! Thanks Sharon!!
