Its taken a while to find suitable fabric - fabric that is made from a natural fibre, is fairly transparent and that has a high thread count. With this fine fabric, I have found that a magnifier and a good light are a must to be able to see and count the threads.
The year is drawing to an end and on reflection I seem to have done rather little embroidery. I did however put a couple of small items on the CEG exhibition a couple of months ago. This Dresden Lace Lily was one of them. Its one of a number of similar pieces that I have been working on during the year.

The design was adapted from a sleeve ruffle which appears in Heather Toomer's book Embroidered with White. Another challenge was to find unusual stitches and stitches that vary in texture.
