Beardsley Embroidery progress


I’ve spent a couple of hours this week working on this neglected piece, I’m pleased with how french knot corner has turned out and it’s lovely to have a section finished


However it hasn’t all been merry carefree stitching as I’m having some problems with the bottom section as I have tiny strands of the red fabric poking through my outline stitches


I can’t seem to cut the red fabric any closer to the stitches and I’m worried that I’ll accidently snip the black stitching – this has already happened to me when I did my initial applique cutaway – so I’m not sure what to do here. I did think of gently applying black paint around the edge of the stitching or the route I don’t really want to go down – stitching the entire bottom section…If anyone can offer me any advice on what I should do I would be extremely grateful!
