These are the yarns that I bought for the embroidery work of this chapter The effect yarn I will use for couching.
For actual stitchery I will go back to my stock of cotton silk and wool yarns.

Rubbings taking from paper relief surfaces.
Because I don’t have flimsy black paper for the rubbing, I dyed a silk paper with black ink. I got the best results with chalk, pastels and oil paint sticks. The last named, however, must be applied with little pressure, otherwise there are no lines but smear. I used natural colored tissue paper for the black pencils .I like the results on the light background better. There are more recognizable details that I can use for embroidery.
