Yes, I know, I already wanted to start working at my Klosterstich hands-on photo tutorial but I have to admit that I just finished another small needle book with Klosterstich embroidery instead. 😀
While I was getting the materials for my hands-on photo tutorial together, I realized that I still have two small patches with 14th century inspired Klosterstich embroidery which I haven’t turned into needle books yet…
…and because I already have more than enough U.F.O.s lying around (= UnFinished Objects), like my “12th century Saint Michael and the Dragon” embroidery or my “We have Dragons” Klosterstich tablet cover, I decided to finish up this small needle books before I start working at my next project – the Klosterstich hands-on photo tutorial.
I anyway needed some new small gifts to restock my “Travel & Largesse Fund” after visiting “The Tourney of the Foxes” last weekend. At least it doesn’t take long to finish this needle books as long as I remind myself not to get too fancy on the additional embroidery and decoration. I promise that I will do my best to finish them as fast as possible. 🙂
…and finally a picture of the new needle book with another 14th century Fleur-de-Lis Klosterstich embroidery – enjoy! 😀
…and here a close up of the Klosterstich embroidery for you:
The picture above actually shows the Klosterstich patch before it was cut out and applied to the the needle book. I used Klosterstich to fill in/cover the sections and Stem Stitch for the outlines.
I am sure you recognize the pattern – it is the same 14th century inspired Fleur-de-Lis pattern which I already used for the last Fleur-de-Lis Klosterstich patches. I just used a slightly different color combination. Btw. you can download this pattern at my <Medieval Inspired Embroidery Patterns page>. 😀
Just one more 14th century inspired flower patch that needs to be turned into a needle book with Klosterstich embroidery and I can finally start working at my Klosterstich hands-on photo tutorial. 😀
