I came across this book via another blog (I can't remember which one) and thought the embroidery looked so cute. I have ordered it and am very excited about receiving it!!!!! I have a basic needlework book but to be honest the explanations for the stitches are not the clearest. I used them to muck about with this -
Some basic embroidery practice on cotton. I used a snail trail stitch for the trunk and a not very good stem stitch. Still loads to do and practice!
Also I finished these blocks for my wee girl's 9 patch quilt -
A daisy stitch for the hat, red french knots for the flowers and a made up stitch for the shoes!
Done and ready to be sewn into the other blocks eventually!
I have been mucking about with my old digital camera (and not getting annoyed, honest), so hope these photos are a bit clearer.
Oh well, son is due in from school in 7 minutes so I best go and mentally prepare for the noise!
Love Collette xx
