This has been an interesting piece to stitch, kind of half way between creating a full design from scratch and stitching a pre-designed piece. I have enjoyed figuring out colours and techniques and have learned quite a lot, about what both works and what doesn't.

I'm finding it much easier to work on this fabric now. It's a bit odd though, the normal tension we would put on the silk is too much for this fabric and it pulls the warp and weft threads out of place, so I've had to get used to not pulling the thread as much as I would normally. However it all seems to be working out now and I'm very pleased with how it is going.
