Experiments with Embroidery.
I've always wanted to have a go at embroidery, especially with all the lovely new books out. (well, some have been out for several years now) I decided to start with a sampler from J. Hart's book. It's the one that says "stitches I know". It was good fun.
My next go (which is still a work in progress) is the craft octopus. There will be a different craft implement on each tentacle.
The pillowcase are a gift for my friend Claire. She's a rockabilly gal who loves cherries. Check out her shop at www.dollycool.co.uk I bought some white pillowcase and added some cherries. The cherries don't quite match. Woops. Didn't realized it until the finally knots had been trimmed. I'll make her another set when I get the hang of it.
