My sister-in-law's father died from lung cancer recently, so I put together a small card for her. Above you can see the materials including the design transferred onto white silk and mounted into the working hoop, and below you can see the Anchor pattern I took the design from. It was originally a wedding ring cushion!
Below is the finished item (I took no WIP photos this time as it was a quick piece) with a few extras added in to 'pad it out' and the ribbon attached as well.
I'm part way through the last of my DMC stumpwork kits and will report on that soon.
