Padded Needle lace

For many days I was contemplating in doing this embroider as I was not very confident about the outcome.I always envy Janet M Davies works(Stitchinfingers) admiring the beauty of the raised embroidery.I often enlarge the picture and try to read the minute details in it to figure out as to how to go about it.Fearing failure I hesitated to even start doing it.But I could not take this out of my mind totally. So finally I decided to do it.I did not have any wadding to stuff the inside,instead I managed it with cotton.The thread I used is DMC Perle cotton 5 which I bought it from the US.But I am not happy with it.I want to try one more design in Anchor cotton thread.I will try a small sample with that and if the thread suits then will surely do a larger piece and get it box framed.Though the embroidery is not up to my expectation I am happy that at least I gave it a try.
