its taken all day to post these images

Got it into my head to change my blog, with drastic consequences. I ve spent most of the day trying to figure out why I can no longer upload images from my desktop files. Not sure if I have changed something in settings, layout or template but Ive lost the browse button.  But as Im not one to give up through sheer determination I have managed to upload some images of embroidery I have been working on. Ive never done this type of embroidery before so bare in mind they are first attempts.
 my attempt at Hardanger embroidery. All I can say is very difficult.

this shows how difficult it is getting the correct tension on the thread. Pulling thread too tight will pull the weave of fabric leaving major problems when tyring to pull threads through to create openwork designs.

This was my attempt of wite satin stitch on white linen fabric. Thought 'How easy can it be', but not easy at all. Once again the right tension and the correct placement of the needle will determine how well the final execution will be. Although from a distance this doesnt look too bad but up close under a magnifier its a whole diffferent story.

these samples together reminded me of pac man. Well Group 2 of Hand and Lock did same combine with space age 1969, albeit Pac man is slightly later than 1969

the whitework on linen was hopefully to help me the execution but I can see this is going to be a long process of practice and experimentation. I can send this into hand and lock. Mind you like I said I dont expect this to get through to the second stage but one can dream.
