I have used folk art paints mixed with a textile medium and painted the child, toys and quilt then embellished with different embroidery stitches. The background is a French General yellow solid.
I love embroidery but my skills are a little rusty so I turn to the internet, friends and books to learn more about the craft. My favourite books are the A-Z series. Vol I and II of embroidery stitches have step by step photos of every stitch.
