Starting Svinda's Red Stole for Pentecost & Ordination

Here's a reminder of the collection of reds that Svinda's friends and family have provided. Note the Chinese embroidery in the upper right.

I've cut a bird out of the corner, and have covered it with some tulle to protect it. The embroidery is predominantly satin stitch with some long threads--the tulle (netting) protects it from being snagged.

I've incorporated this bird into the curved piecing.

And did the same with a second bird from the upper right hand corner of the embroidery.

Here's the piecing I've done so far today.

All-in-all, a good day's work!

  1. Tulle over the embroidered bird is such a great idea. You are so clever.
