Crow embroidery

Made for @artsycandice in the Halloween Advent swap. It’s stitched on orange linen from the scrap bag.
The pattern is based on a drawing I found on Google but altered a little bit here and there.

Yes, it’s a regular wooden hoop that I painted with an acrylic paint marker. I’m not really good at using real paint so paint markers are great for me. I use them all the time to paint hoops and frames in the right colour.

It’s not embroidery linen but I think a scrap from a pair of trousers my mum made in the 90s. I love the texture.

That textured linen is the perfect fabric for this project. Well done.

Very nice! The simplicity of the crow really lets the viewer appreciate the lines of the crow AND the beautiful linen.
