one I did earlier
A few years ago the challenge at the Lincolnshire Embroiderers Guild was to make a sampler of canvas work stitches. I didn't want to make a conventional sampler so instead made this. I stitched onto rug canvas using cotton warping thread. Glued tissue paper over and then painted and gilded the samples. They are mounted on childrens building blocks each around 4cm each side. I showed off my carpentry skills (!!!!) by making the box to display them in
The judge of the challenge wasn't impressed.
