Thank you for your lovely comments on my previous post. They are much appreciated!
I hope those taking part in Halloween celebrations had a great weekend, and visited some of the many blogs displaying Halloween creations.
DH and I were walking last week when we saw this spooky cat! He's a little small - just click on the photo to enlarge! He was very friendly, and I was worried he was going to follow us home. He didn't though, we out-walked him!
|Strange how their eyes look in the dark, isn't it?|
Although I had previously embroidered with wool on my handicraft group's "fruit" project (seen here), it still feels quite odd. I would be much happier stitching with Perlè threads. However I will persevere and finish it!
Unfortunately the fabric is a little hazardous, as it seems to be something like sacking material, and when I'm doing the inevitable "frogging" dusty fibres are flying in the air - I inadvertently breathed some in before I realised what was happening. It wasn't very nice!
The weave of the fabric is hindering neat stitching, as one cannot push the needle in just where it is needed. To the left of the flower there is a flaw in the fabric, which wasn't visible when I started stitching - and I hope to be able to disguise it in some way - I need to add a smaller flower or leaf of some type to cover it.
I am linking to Super Mom - No Cape for her Vintage Stitchery Link Party - do pop over to see more stitching projects. Today Susan has a free PDF of Vintage Workbasket Baby Embroidery Motifs.
