‘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…..
