Feathers / Federn

I’m doing some sketches for new embroidery pieces and had fun doodling these different shapes of feathers. Next step is stitching a mini sampler tablecloth on brown linen (about 40x40cm/ 15.5×15.5inch). Working with thick linen is always a big delight for me. The grip and coolness to the hand make it a lovely alternative to cotton. I’m using my favorite vintage Perle cotton in autumn colors in backstitch.
