This little thistle was embroidered on a beautiful Campbell tartan silk. I used stranded cottons but felt they needed highlighting as the tartan was quite dark so I added some metallic thread stitches.
I really love this with the tartan background. The metallic thread accents are perfect!
Thank you so much, it was a present . The person in question was a Campbell before she was married so I was very pleased to get some silk in that tartan!!
Och! this is gorgeous!
