My creative space...


Snowed under with the day job so not much going on this week other than a bit of quiet embroidery.

A big thank you to Steph Bond of Bondville fame for featuring edward and lilly this week and also to Katy for blogging my purse here.

Head over to Kirsty's for more spaces.

Thanks everyone, you're all so kind :)

I'm still working out what this one will end up as... maybe a tote... or a journal cover, hmmmm not sure...

Steph Bond @ Bondville said...

Hi Rebecca - you're welcome! And this new pieces is gorgeous!!!! What about a pillow? Or a lingerie bag? Or napkins?

Gina said...

love love love! Still new to embroidery - is this backstitched or something different? Such a clean line.

I think a journal cover is a really great idea for this one!!

Thanks Gina, it's actually whip stitch, my favourite. I like it for the clean line and also because it doesn't get caught on things as easily so it's good for using on embroideries that will end up on items that get thrown around a lot or stuffed into handbags :)

It starts as a back stitch which is why you can still see some back stitching on it. Then you thread back through the back stitch, kinda hard to explain. You should try it out! I'm sure there would be some online tutorials for it somewhere.

Kirsty said...

Oooh she's gorgeous!

Hot Fudge said...

My vote would be for a journal cover or a lingerie bag. Whatever you do with it though, it's sure to be beautiful.

Angie said...

wow, this is gorgeous.

To tell you the truth, I find a lot of embroidery very uninspiring but your work is great!

Lucy Bowler said...
