These are my formal and informal stitching patterns. I used wheatear stitch connected and detached. The formal patterns are at the top with the corresponding informal example underneath. They were great fun to do and a chance to sit still for a while and listen to some opera!
You can probably see the chorus, the soloists, the rhythmical and arrythmical melodies!
It took a while to get any decent rubbings. Chalk smudged, markal tore the tissue, candle made amorphous blobs. I finally got some half decent ones with a white neocolour crayon.
