Skeleton Dance Embroidery
I've been researching hand hooked rugs and embroidered rugs, and I am having a little experiment with some canvas and embroidery floss. I am using a very dense, all over Turkish Knot stitch, which makes little loops all over. I want it to look like a little rug, kind of tufted. I am putting the stitches in sort of every which way because I think it looks fuller, and it's easier than trying to make the stitches all go one way.
