embroidery - past and present
I haven't spent much time embroidering in the past week and a half or so. :(
When I was gathering photos for the assignment I posted earlier this week, I ran across some pre-blog embroidery.
I embroidered this up as a wall-hanging for a good friend of mine nearly seven years ago.
Here is C sitting in front of it to give you a sense of scale - it was rather large.
I made these tea towels up and apparently gave them to someone but I have no idea who.
Ditto for these tea towels. :)
I made this bib for my sister B in celebration of her first daughter. I used a gargoyle from a Dover pattern book and added the drool and the little quote. I made the bib out of one of those water proof spit mats or changing mats. It actually embroidered really nicely.
A skirt I made for K that I still adore.
I embroidered the bird and blossom on pillowcases as an anniversary gift for my parents one year. I love them and consider them some of my best work.
