My love for line art continues...

One of my previous digitizing class was creation of simple line design and using the technique of copy and paste to create a juxtaposed look in a contrasting color. While the first line art started at the bottom and finished at the top, the process of copy and paste created a huge jump stich  when I pasted the design. I was able to exchange the start and end position to create the final version thus eliminating the jump stitch.The lesson also involved using a color stop, deleting the stop,changing color, changing stitch type, working with different designs, and understanding parameter settings.

 On one of my recent trips to Quebec city I was lucky to get hold of a book by Vale'rie Caterin -
L'atelier de Lilie. It is full of beautiful art work suitable for redwork embroidery.
Here is one that I have digitized.
