Trying my hand at ...
... Brazilian Embroidery. Deepa is helping me to learn Brazilian Embroidery! So far I'm really enjoying it. Here I have tried some leaves, the stem stitch and french knots. You can see Deepa's blog here: http://deepashome.blogspot.com/ . She has worked up a lovely peacock that I hope to try one day.
I have tried Brazilian embroidery once before up in Denver as part of CQI's first retreat in 2008 but didn't get very far -- story of my life!
I have a limited color selection in rayon threads so I don't exactly have matching colors in my branches, but at least they are all green. (- ; However, I was at an estate sale recently and found a plastic container full of Edmar threads - God is good! I've been working on bullions today -- my worst subject so I'll be needing a lot of practice.
