'Pea Thief' Caul - Stage 1
One of the items in my Unfinished Objects pile was a monochrome uncounted embroidery of birds and peas. The design is adapted from a silk embroidered jacket in the V&A Museum. I traced the design out in 2011, worked a couple of leaves and then never got back to it. Over the Christmas break I rushed through the embroidery (mainly chain and double running stitch, with a few stem stitch leaves.) The next step is to decide on which beads to use for the 'peas' and whether to spangle.
