Crewel sampler update

Hi Everyone and Happy New Year.
I know is a bit late ,.. maybe very late but can you believe did not get the chance to breath yet this year .
Between Celebrations , lace doing , having a fall down the stairs and lots of classes I did not even realise is nearly end of Jan.
I will try to take it one by one.
 My little owl is done all in DMC cotton and I have to say a love it . Is very shiny and very delicate , comparative with rest of the sampler .
Anyway took my quite a lot of time as was done in one single strand of cotton I could say like the silk shading techniques.

In this one here wanted to show the square which is kind of cord couched which I actually learnt from Tracy's Franklin face book page .This is taking very long maybe to long for my like but is a good exercise because I have to say I always seems to loose the strait forward direction :( :(
Now ... at the end of this week I have a trip to Hampton to start my Goldwork embroidery  module which was so much waited for. I am bit apprehensive but very excited too. Hope to have a better experience than with the black work . Anyway can't wait to get back my black work  piece .

Hope to get some time to make some updates about the trip to London soon as I start the work

Happy crafting all
