All these elements are worked in Soie d’Alger French silk; techniques include needlepainting and soft shading. The embroiderer will learn to blend the threads to produce a realistic effect.
The background fabric is the new sage green congress cloth which has been embellished with a subtle blackwork pattern worked in a sightly darker shade of the congress cloth. This small project works up fairly quickly.
