The new year is starting gradually with some new work. Little tiny heads stitched on calico and then backed onto felt
Before Christmas I received some lovely little pendant frames from Ewoodstory to have a mess around with and come up with a pattern to fit inside. The frame above is the olive and I have come up with three little heads to fit into it. I also have one of these that I will be making drawings for and stitching next week.
I've really enjoyed doing a bit of tiny stitching. I managed to mostly get away with two strands but the face and neck are just a single strand. Once the pattern is ready I will show how I attach the embroidery to the frame. It really is very simple.
and the other thing that has found it's way onto my work table just today is the very beginning of a new pattern.
It has been exceptionally windy and wet in the UK recently and I will admit that I tend not to use an umbrella precisely because of the above picture. I did once have a hurricane umbrella that lasted quite well but even that couldn't fight with Cornish wind and rain, not to mention the waves coming over on to the prom!
So I was inspired to draw an umbrella girl!
Now on to stitching her!
