Seahorse silverwork embroidery, a kit by Rajmahal. Took 3 weeks to do and is completely stunning to look at. Thoroughly recommend them!

This is beatific. I bought the kit several years ago and now feel I can tackle it!!! I have a question. On the right hand side where it is continuous chain stitch, did you do it all in one or do each small panel separately?

Are you talking about the area around the seahorses face? I did it as if it was an oddly shaped circle and worked from the outside in... does that help? Also... my answer is not necessarily the right one... this was the first piece of embroidery I have ever done!!! lol

I love this. I would be interested on getting a stitch guide or even a kit for this if you do that?

Hello Bustierde, you can get the kit  - it's not mine, it's from this company... but you can usually find it sold in other shops too if shipping from Australia is too expensive. www.rajmahal.com.au/products.p…

I suppose I did just a fraction... the silver sprinkles on the sand at the bottom... I added a few more in because I felt the levels were slightly wrong in the original design, but that's really a minor, minor change.  Thank you for your kind words :) It was actually my first ever embroidery too! lol (But I have cross stitched for 17 years).
