Lady with Unicorn Update: Third Row Finished

Posted by Avital Pinnick on October 10, 2017

Lady with Unicorn

Just wanted to brag about finishing another row in the endless embroidery. Did I mention that it contains over 180,000 stitches?

If you’re working on this piece, don’t give up! The tablecloth is a killer and takes about twice as long as the other pages, but the lion and unicorn bodies are easier than the fruit salad that surrounds them.

Here’s the whole photoset.

    Beautiful. I would love to do this but I think I’d go totally mad over the background, so many small areas of different colours.

      It’s basically technique. If you have a good cross-stitching technique (I use pin stitch to begin and end threads) and a large scroll frame, magnifying glasses, and floor stand, it’s actually fairly relaxing. 🙂
