Time for a short break from Queen stitch. The ‘W’ is worked in flame stitch.
I started stitching this motif with a single strand of Soie de Paris but thought that it looked a little thin. I took what I had done and started again with two strands and thought that gave better coverage. It looks a little dense compared to the Queen stitch motifs but I think it will be in better balance when the gold work is added.
