I never did share photos of my finished embroidered iris, which is a needle painting project from Tanja Berlin. So I thought I’d show you the end results!
This was a fantastic kit to work – I do love Tanja Berlin’s kits! They are great for practicing needle painting techniques without the ho-hum part of deciding what to do – the designs are already transferred on the fabric, the threads are all laid out neatly, and I don’t even have to search for the right needle. So, now and then, I like working on these types of kits! Besides, with every design I work of hers, I learn a new aspect of painting with a needle!
When I last posted photos of the iris, it was pretty much complete, but don’t you think that the yellow really brings the flower to life?
Here’s the completed piece. I haven’t yet decided what to do with it – any thoughts?
I love the yellow!
There are two colors of yellow here – the knots are actually elongated French knots.
The color selection on this particular project was really fantastic. I had a lot of fun working it!
Now…. what to do with it??
