This embroidery for the lid of the tape measure cover measures only approximately 4 cm across and it’s taken me many hours over several days to stitch, longer than I expected it would. I outlined each part with stem stitch then filled them with satin stitch except for the light blue area which is filled with French knots. As an afterthought I used gold around the outer edges to give the medallion a visual lift using stem stitch, with the centre in satin stitch and a single French knots. I had to resort to using my small forceps to pull the needle through. There’s a slightly raised effect which I like although it’s not very obvious from the image. All stitching done with a single strand of DMC embroidery cotton and silk. Glad to be finished with this now and looking forward to starting something else.
