The Birds – background

Background of my resting birds

Background of my resting birds

Well I finished the design on my Resting Birds cushion, so now it’s just the acres of white background. I didn’t want to do more tent stitch, but wasn’t sure what else would work and then I came across an image of this – it’s a canvas work lobster from the Royal School of Needlework and I loved the background.

I searched through my needlepoint ‘bible’ (-The Needlepoint Book by Jo Ippolito Christensen) and discovered it was diagonal cashmere. I have to say there is quite a bit of compensation and I am finding it a bit tricky when I need to restart (after running into an edge or something), but I do like the effect.
