My handmade Christmas preparations continue in my
|Pin placed there to show tiny scale of design. This is a 3" hoop.|
That little bit of embroidery took me an hour! AN HOUR! I'm soooooo S...L...O...W.... Didn't help that I ripped out what I had done once on the tree and once on the mug because it didn't look right so I re-did it. And looking at it in the picture I think that mug has another chance to be ripped out again as I'm not so sure I like how the curve on the top is going. Like I said, I am a slow embroidererererer person. But it will get done, eventually!
I used one of the transfers from Aneela Hoey's "Little Stitches" embroidery book which makes it so easy to transfer onto the fabric and then start. Finishing is another story altogether! I still need to get on and finish this one too....
So many works in progress, so little time! Linking to Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday
so cute! laughing at embroidererererer ;-)
cute! Can't wait to see it finished!
I NEED that book so so so much!
Mug is looking very mug like...and also cute...
Your stitching looks fab...love the girl in the red dress...so pretty!
Small but perfectly formed...it's going to be gorgeous :-) (Must put that book on my xmas list!)
I think the mug is sweet. What will you do with it when it's done?
Oh it is looking so sweet so far even if it is a bit time consuming!
