Embroidered cards

I have been enjoying my embroidery again and a few little cards have been created


This was made from the embroidery that I showed you last time, it is made with blue organza at the back of the flowers.


This one is a nice snowdrop embroidery, the stitches are satin stitch, stem stitch and French knots.


 I have embroidered two more cards that I will show you all next time.


There isn't any embroidery on this one, the flower has been stamped and layered.


I have also made two pairs of knitted socks ready for the winter

Wonky Donkey

The donkey has been made for the donkey sanctuary in Manchester, they sell them in their gift shop to raise money for the charity. My husband called him wonky due to his bandy legs, poor thing, I think he has had a hard life!!




I have started a little embroidery, I was inspired by a programme I watched on hochanda all about Rowandean embroidery kits, I just had to get the sewing hoop out and have a go.



This is a little card that I made, embossed flowers in the middle with a parchment frill
