I really like this embroidery. Don't know why the little people have crept into this embroidery but they give a bit of personality to the medallion images.
The Book and Needles Project is still as mysterious to me as ever, but my handling of the craft aspect is becoming ever surer.
Part of the difficulty I have been experiencing comes from my ground material. Embroidery and canvas are not really well suited for each other. But I like the visual coarseness of canvas.
The drawback of working on canvas is that it allows me much less ability to make fine stitches or limits the evenness of the stitches. The coarseness of the material dictates where and how I can use the needle, and also the length of stitch in a particular area.
I like the textural effect of the coarse medium and the heavy texture. It adds weight to the simple images.
