It’s a tradition at Canevas Folies.
Each year before Easter it is a pleasure for me to offer an embroidered egg to mark the end of winter.
It is a small work of a few hours and for this edition I chose a chiseled and monochrome embroidery.

The original size of this egg is 10cm and I fully embroidered it with DMC 816 stranded cotton.
I only used 3 stitches to do this work
satin stitch for solid patterns (without forgetting the split backstitch around each surface)
split backstitch for the cluster flower
The full embroidery is realized with 1 thread and the surfaces are not padded!
