I Tried to Be Nice……..Part II

JF has been doing quite a bit of embroidery on linen.  This is a darling little pincushion and below is a really, really great sampler.    DSC00478








‘Tis a time consuming deal.   Every 2 threads is a stitch.  Good light and a good magnifier are required!

This picture doesn’t even come close to doing justice to this piece.  This is a block of the month (I think) that JV has completed.  The flowers are 3-dimensional and have some bead work.  The colored frames around each flower are hand embroidered.  All done in wool and the workmanship is outstanding!  It’s beautiful JV!



Naturally, JM hand-appliqued this cutie. Say, I remember doing the quilting on that..

And THIS ONE ------------


It’s just amazing.  Made by JM a few years back but it is awesome.  It’s called “Scrap Soup”.  Guess that’s appropriate, huh?





And here’s the lovely Ms. Karen.  This was a punch needle pattern that she converted to a stitchery design.  I didn’t know you could do that!  You are so clever and talented Mrs. Farmhouse.

Hang in there, I’m almost done…..
