And now for something completely different...


This is a small panel I stitched and embroidered on canvas, using various threads, organza, ribbons, lace and beads, and incorporating pebbles and shells from the local beach.
I've done a few of these, but they are hard to photograph because of the three dimensional nature of the embroidery.
Oh, and check out Yuko's wonderful blog, where she is offering a giveaway of two gorgeous pinkeeps.
