ROBIN IN GRASS - Kit of the Month

The Robin is an intermediate to advanced needle painting technique. For a complete explanation of the technique and relative difficulty of the embroidery Click Here!.

The kit has detailed instructions and lots of diagrams to guide your through the embroidery. The fabric comes with the design hand drawn on so there are no worries about transferring the design and the threads come wrapped on a long floss bobbin and numbered so you know exactly which colour to use.

Working the embroidery: The Robin is worked in a single strand of DMC embroidery floss in the needle at one time, embroidering the design in straight stitches. These stitches are either satin stitch or long and short or are all the same length but alternate in positions so that the colours blend together.

If you have any questions as you are working the embroidery you can email me at any time and I will be happy to help you. I am offering free on going critique for this kit, for more details go to - Free on going critique.

I recommend stretcher bar frames to work Needle Painting in as you can get excellent tension on all four sides of the embroidery resulting in smoother stitches. For information about the frames visit my Embroidery Frames webpage. (Parcel Mail costs apply to stretcher bar frames).
