Elizabethan Embroidery

OK.., I have decided to take up the tests to become a craft teacher in ICA Ireland.
I do believe is lots to work and at the moment I decided to start to learn my self few techniques and then with few more lessons from specialists maybe polishing my skills.
One of the subjects for tests will be  the Elizabethan Embroidery
My very first attempt did not come so nice but I will keep insisting on do it .
The flower do not have all the petals even and they did not raise properly as my cloth did not was stretch in off so most of the filling have been going on the back of the cloth instead of in the front of the petal.
As for the braid next time I have to mark my entrance and exit points so I will be able to do an even braid, probably need to use different kind of braid for such design .
By the way have not have an actual design bu just give a try with some flower .

Happy crafting all
