Slow Going

I am still working on this laminated watercolour/cotton base with tissue prints on top and hand stitching. The tiny French nots are taking me quite a while to do as it is hard going through the paper even with having pre-needled the stitch positions. I am pleased though with the choice of variegated 6 strand embroidery thread as the clusters of knots have a dimensional look to them. I have really enjoyed this technique but I think I would chose a lower weight paper in the future
