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.
