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.

Merry May part 2 and Monthly challenge

You can stop nagging now ;D, here is my 2nd May ornament! This one is from the JCS 2007 Ornament Issue, and is by The Sunflower Seed. I fell in love with this the minute I saw it, and I'm really happy with how its come out, though its a tad larger than I'd normally do for an ornament.

Next up is the Monthly Challenge. This month the challenge was to stitch a biscornu. Regular readers will know I'm a sucker for biscornus (biscorni?) so I did 2, the first is from "les chroniques de frimousse", and the second is from The Victoria Sampler (join Thea's Yahoo group to access the free chart). The other finishes are in the album, and there are some beauties!

Merry May Ornament - part 1

Since I didn't get a Christmas ornament finished last month for the Monthly Ornament SAL I'm hoping to finish two in May, so this is May ornament part 1. Its meant to look like a handbag, (no, really, it is) and is for Clare's stitched ornament tree for her church, which this year has the theme "Miss-tree".
Watch this space for May ornament part 2, and nag me if I don't get it done ;D
