Royal School of Needlework Certificate of Technical Hand Embroidery progress

It is embarrassing to realize that I have been taking this certificate for a long time, so long in fact, that I cannot remember when I started. However, I am keeping going. There are four pieces which have to be stitched in four different disciplines. I have chosen the theme of peacocks, actually not quite sure why…seemed like a good idea at the time and so it is proving to be. This far. I am going to run out of road when I get to silk shading as there is a rule….who knows why….that silk shading can only have as a subject, a fruit, a vegetable or a flower…..no birds…or feathers…so if there is a peacock fruit or flower or vegetable I am in business.. If not some creativity is needed……mmmmm isn’t that what it is all about?

Actually I have found a peacock flower. Not the brightly colored inspiring petal creation you might expect but it will be just fine as a subject for my silk shading which will be amateurish I expect. …..since I have never tried it before.

Will keep you posted.
