I finished this wall hanging yesterday, but didn’t take any photos of it at that point. It’s so hard to get good close up pictures to show the details.
And here is one of the close up photos (disregard the stray white thread) … I do a micro-stipple in #100 silk in the background, which causes the non-stitched items to puff up a little. In some cases (not necessarily in this piece) the puffy areas actually end up looking like they’ve been appliqued.
I use the magnifying glass attachments for my Bernina in order to make the micro-stippling easier.
