The Carnation is the seventh in the Birth Month Flower series of Echidna P.I.E. (P.I.E. stands for Premium Inspiration and Education).
Month 7 (January) is all about Adding Colour with Other Media". In this lesson Lindee will expand on non-embroidery elements by adding colour to one of the January P.I.E. redwork designs – using nothing but basic coloured pencils.
For this month's project you will be creating and colouring in a pretty wallhanging.
Whether you are a beginner or experienced machine embroiderer, you will discover that Lindee's teaching is very thorough, well-presented, jargon free and easy-to-understand. Your embroidery skills will blossom as will the pleasure of creating beautiful new projects. If you have missed the previous months of Echidna P.I.E you will find them here.
