More fun with hand embroidery.

I'm taking a break from Peacock Lady again as I've finished with all the colours I had on-hand and worked on a little embroidered 'E' instead. I really enjoyed seeing this one come along and am really proud of my raised satin stitch.

What do you think?

Pattern is from Needle 'n Thread, embroidered onto white cotton with DMC stranded cotton using one strand.


  1. Wow, GORGEOUS job! I've always wanted to try a monogram myself, but I'm that brave yet :) Satin Stitch looks so easy, but I think it's actually the hardest stitch to master, and your stitching is so even and neat! Great job ;)

    1. Thank you! It was surprisingly easy, just the sharp turns were a bit tricky.
