Herringbone TAST and Self Portrait

I tried the herringbone with various threads in the first picture.
Chenille, beads, Edmar boucle, a funny thread with tiny pom pons is the closest I can describe it.
Rayon ribbon in two widths, silver cord and lastly, a tatting thread.









Edmar Lola is used for the twisted herringbone and Frost for greenery, with sequin flowers.






More Lola for the 2nd embroidery and the bullions are made with Minnimurra variegated thread.








Just trying some different stitches with the herringbone





and below is my self-portrait.







just me.






Boucle for the hair; the face is a millefiori by my youngest DD. All else is herringbone.

You are too funny Maureen! I love your self-portrait...but it doesn't look anything like you. It was so nice to see the picture of you and Julia on her blog.

Your herringbone stitching is so inventive. I really need to be practicing too.

Love your creative stitching, Maureen. The colors in the flowers you did with Lola are outstanding, as are the stitches!
