The Morning Glories is a Level 3: Advanced of my Further Education kits in which you have the option of purchasing the 3 PDF files with colour work-in-progress pictures of the entire stitching process on my morning glories that I provide when I run my on-line classes.

The Morning Glories is worked in needle painting also known as thread painting and long and short stitch. This is the most realistic form of surface embroidery which is worked in staggered straight stitches in a single strand of embroidery thread on a closely woven fabric, blending rows of colour to create a very realistic embroidery. The sheen of the threads adds to the soft effect of the petals.

Please visit the Needle Painting Information page for more information on needle painting and rating of the designs from easy to hard.

Silk fabric with a cotton backing fabric is provided in the kit and the DMC embroidery cotton threads come on a numbered thread template so you know exactly which colour to use on the embroidery. There are 15 DMC cotton thread colours used in the embroidery.

For the morning glories design there is the option of receiving the kit with or without the design hand drawn on the fabric. It takes me 1/2 and hour to draw the design onto the fabric…….this is something you may like to do yourself and work the entire project through from beginning to end.

The easiest method to transfer the design is to trace the design from the pattern with the aide of a light box. The prick and pounce method is not the most effective method to transfer the design as the pounce does not sit well on the silk fabric and can smudge and then it is hard to see the design lines to accurately draw over the pounce lines.

In the kit I provide a detailed instruction booklet with 25 pages of step-by-step diagrams and instructions. The 3 PDF files combined with the instructions will give you a well rounded learning in the technique but the PDF files are not essential to work the morning glories.

The last few pictures in the picture gallery show some of the pages in the PDF files.

PDF #1 has 36 pages, PDF #2 has 30 pages and PDF #3 has 34 pages of pictures and instructions.The 3 PDF files are emailed and the kit with instructions are mailed……sorry I do not email the instruction booklet for the morning glories.

Needle painting can be challenging so I suggest learning the technique from one of my kits rather than from a book as you get much more instructions in my kit rather than a book which usually only has a few pages of instructions for one design.

I am offering free on-going critique with this kit…..you can email me at any time if you have questions or would like me to critique your embroidery.
