It's my day today to show you what I embroidered for the Stitch Me Up Embroidery Blog Hop. Thanks Madame Samm for creating another wonderful blog hop. Thanks to cheerleader Jane. I also want to thank Madame Samm, Debbie Martinez from Busy As Can Be and Cyndi of Bee Tree Designs for providing us with some really beautiful drawings for us to choose from in order to make our embroidered projects. There were 9 different choices we had and also several pages of embroidery texture patterns we could also use.
Since hand embroidery takes time to do, I chose only 2 of the designs to create. I hope you like them.
|I call this little quilt Madame Samm in Paris.|
|I made this from the embroidery drawing that Madame Samm created for this blog hop and I chose to make a small quilt.|
|I embroidered the hair to look more hair-like.|
|The Blue Chair is what I named this embroidered quilt. The drawing of the blue chair was a design from Debbie Martinez. She also had a dress form in her drawing, but I chose to use only the chair.|
|I used a hand dyed blue fabric that I hand dyed last summer. I sewed stacked buttons on the front of the arm.|
|The border and binding fabric is a batik fabric. I used a tiny white rick-rack around the pink inner border.|
|I made this tea towel a few years ago. I used crayons and a variety of embroidery stitches on this one. Her dress is all embroidered and I also embroidered flowers on the item she is pressing.|
March 22 is also my 5-year blog anniversary. My very first posting was on March 22, 2008. So I thought it would be a great time to have a give-away for my followers only. Please let me know you follow my blog when you leave your comment. You must be a follower to win, since it's my blog anniversary give-away just for my followers. I'm not sure what I will give away, but if you like a mystery it will be something good. Good luck. Giveaway Closed.
