''Embroidery Windows '' more updates

I finally got the courage to start in one of the windows with DMC cotton .
Hmm... crewel with cotton floss ... not so funny
I choose for this exercise the Owl window . First to do the branch with raised stem stitch .
As you can see below a bit of a w ably start...

 Then after many many rows a bit of more body to the branch
 In this pic below I try to show off how much raised is this branch . All in all I think I am happy how came out . I think I will use a normal stem stitch under branch so I can make it much smut.
 Here is an overview picture of the work done in this window . Is taking a lot of time , maybe much more than expected .

 The leaf on the side have french knots done with only one wrap and bullion knots .

 Bless PC's as I always can see the faults on the work . With my eyes I never could see how many stitches I still miss on my long and short area of the owl . I will be back over this area at the end and will see if I can fix it.
I think this will be one of the slow going projects but I stat to get use to have some of this .

 Happy crafting all


  1. I can;t wait to see it all!

  2. you have shared the branch beautifully and I know the owl will look great when completed
