My Hoop Up piece for Eklundjen has made its way across the Atlantic, yay! Jen’s theme was clichés, so as with the One Eyed Horse Monster, I took a vintage pattern, in this case, this one, uploaded by Beetastic and altered it a bit with some Urban Threads monster face pieces, to make a literal interpretation of a rotten apple.
I also simplified the design of the bowl a bit.
(All stitched with pearl cotton).
So, anyway, now Jen has seen the finished piece, I can post my Crafting 365 February mosaic!
Hmmm, quite an embroidery heavy month I see, which although there is nothing wrong with that, part of doing this was to encourage me to use my sewing machine more often / do other crafts, but it was a bit of a stressful month and you can’t beat a bit of soothing embroidery!
