Sunray venus, part 3

Venus done 1

Hm……2″, cotton embroidery floss and cotton canvas. Stuffed with scrap thread and wool.

Venus 4 done

Yup. She’s done. Didn’t actually take all that long, once the pattern was on the canvas. The original shell was collected in the first week of June, so from start to finish, it was three months. However, didn’t work on it all that much, and the cut away shape was what took the time. Three dimensional needlework is complicated. Too many curved shapes. The curves are not perfectly satisfactory. And it is MUCH smaller than the original. But it is a reasonable facsimile and that will have to suffice.

Technique is sound. Just need more practice….
