My creative space...


Finally finishing off this embroidery I started earlier in the year. For those of you with sharp eyes, yes the left leg is a slightly darker shade of pink and yes I will be re-doing it when I pick up some more thread but for the time being I'm hoping to incorporate this image somehow into a page for the 2010 diary project I found out about via Sam (check out Sam's entry, it's awesome!). The diary is black and white so hopefully the slightly darker shade of thread won't be too obvious. Serves me right for leaving things till the last minute!


And some more tiny stitches for lavender scented birds. These ones will be going off to Drift and Reverse Garbage.

For those who are waiting on plush cars, yep they are coming... hopefully next week... and for more creative spaces or to show off your own pop over to Kirsty's.

Pop back later for news about a BIG sale!!!

how great is she! funny, i wouldn't have noticed the 2 colours if you didn't mention it :)

caramela said...

I think she is totally cool and I actually love the difference in the threads, I change colors all the time in my figure drawing- I think it makes the line work so much more visualy exciting!
Have a love day,
Annamaria

claribell said...

Hello :)
As usual your amazingly precise stitching turns me into a hairy green-eyed monster! I love your girl and I love her dark leg...it gives the picture a secret story.

I can't wait to see your page and thanks for liking mine :)

I'm not sure if I would have noticed the darker leg if you did not mention it. lol But it is an amazing work of embroidery! Love the other piece as well. :)

chococatania said...

I love the embroidery I've been seeing lately - especially the embroidered sketches like this.

These little projects keep on bugging me to take out the needles, floss, and fabric and make something unique and nice.

Thanks for the inspirational post, as always! :)

Btw, the darker leg isn't too much of a distraction...and I love the wistful expression of this woman. Great!
