Florophone

Floral gramophone

I was moaning the other day to 5currantbuns that my embroidery mojo had gone missing since I’d moved back to the flat and hey presto shortly after the aforementioned moaning my mojo came back, hurray!

The pattern is from Urban Threads and it was pretty much a case of me daring myself to use some bright colours that are a bit outside my comfort zone but being safe in the knowledge or at least the hope, that the brown of the gramophone would help balance it out. I think it’s worked.

(Also my first attempt at mounting my embroidery on a canvas board now that a nice new art shop, that I am a wee bit addicted to, has opened in town. I think I could probably have mounted the fabric a little tighter, but it was a little tricky as I had been stitching through two layers of fabric, as the fabric I was using was thin.)
