|Hooped and on the go!|
|Finished and cut out with 1cm seam|
So an evening stitching away in front of the tv and it's done, just in time for the next one! I kept to my scheme and I like the way the gold dots stand out but not too much. I can never quite manage french knots, no matter how many times I practise! The little wispy flower stamens were done in five strands of embroidery floss in the needle, two brown, two gold and one white. Looking at it here I like it. Now, where is that squirrel. So many favorite animals, after all this I may even feel brave enough to make up my own corbie design!
And there's a reason why it's on fabric I'm not even using. This is the wonderful prize I received from Fair Trade Fabric, I could not believe it but I won one of their prizes of fabric bundles and I wanted to give them a big big thankyou. I will use it for something, I shall just put it on my shelf and stroke it for a while... It's wonderful to find companies that combine a passion for quilting quality fabric with ethical values
