91  It Came From The Deep ... I Mean, The Hoop!! (Tentacle Stumpwork Embroidery) in Needlework: Completed Projects by jemimah on: January 16, 2011 05:20:22 PM
I made this for the deelightful Deee in the Embroidery Hoopla Tiny Edition swap.

Stumpwork tentacle patterns are not common, so I designed this one from scratch. It was so much fun to put together. Cheesy









The tentacle is stitched on red silk dupion using a little organza applique, rayon and cotton threads. Split stitch filling, spider web, and colonial knots, wired and padded. It's quite small, the hoop is only 3 inches (or 4? can't recall exactly). I think Dee really likes it, and I certainly enjoyed making it.

I'm plotting what to stitch in 3D next. Your comments are welcome. Smiley

92  Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Gallery for round 65 in The Swap Gallery by jemimah on: January 07, 2011 01:18:18 PM
I received a lovely package from atsuko Smiley

Not one but two sets of awesome stitch markers - pretty birdies and cool lego Cheesy - and a big stack of bird notecards.



Thank you so much - the notecards are so sweet and simple, just the sort of thing I use a lot, and the stitch markers are perfect! Smiley

I received a simply gorgeous package from edie22!

She made me a beautiful scarf in some of my favourite peacock colours, and she also spoiled me with some extra embroidery supplies - satin thread and stitchbow holders. The scarf is cleverly crocheted interlocked circles, and looks very pretty and ruffly on.



Closer pic of the scarf.



Thanks edie, I love my package, and I really appreciate your generosity! Smiley

It's here!!!!  Grin

My first parcel from Pearliepie has never arrived.  Cry  I hope it is just having a nice little holiday on a palm-fringed beach, and will come home one day, and is not stuck down a coal mine somewhere ...

But my second AWESOME parcel arrived today! Eeeeeeeeee!!!! (many pictures now)

Fabulous wrapping!


Gorgeous DPN/crochet hook roll, AND fantastic crafted notebook, full of a variety of papers - just my sort of thing! The front cover makes me laugh "There's only one thing worse than one dame ... and that's two dames!" Heh heh - us crafty dames just don't care!



Extras! stickers and pendant, and the fab back of the notebook.



Fantastic embroidery! One of pearliepie's specialties. I haven't decided what I will use them for yet, but I know it will be wonderful Smiley



Awesome pockety bag! I'm going to use it for my best printmaking art things, it has a ridiculously wonderful number of pockets!! Grin and a cute pin, and the best space-y lining fabrics. (and I haven't even got to the best thing yet - I know, I'm very spoilt! Cheesy)




I love everything so much. But best of all, I got a new friend! He is a complete treasure and beautifully made, embroidered all over. Look! He's lovely!!



It was hard to get him to sit still for his photo ...



... as he is really very friendly ...



Thank you so much pearliepie, you sent an incredible package and I love everything!!!!! Grin  Yay for crafty dames!!

95  Little British robin in Needlework: Completed Projects by jemimah on: November 06, 2010 02:00:26 PM
I made this little robin for zilamonster in the OWS.



He's adapted from a pattern in Inspirations magazine (I usually do my own patterns, but he was too cute to resist!)

I stitched him on linen, using real silk (soie d'alger, wonderful stuff), and a little fine rayon (Rajmahal) for the legs and beak. Long and short stitch, satin stitch, running stitch and contrast couching. The hoop is 3 inches diameter, so he's quite tiny. The colours are better in real life, but photos don't really do justice to the silk.

I hope you like him Smiley

I've received an amazing package from Ralph!

Ancient Near Eastern lions!! (I think they are Babylonian.) Necklace and earrings, in a matching metal box.



Aren't they awesome? She put sand in the poly clay to give them a cool texture.

Thanks so much  Ralph, they are great (and fierce Cheesy)!

 Cheesy fab package!

I got a fantastic T-shirt from babalina today!! You will be envious ...



A TARDIS shirt Grin - Awesome painting skills. Thank you Monica, I love it!

(So if it's bigger on the inside, does that mean it looks smaller - preferably several sizes smaller - on the outside?)

Way too cute!!

I got several miles of awesome thread from babalina today Smiley



Gorgeous colours which will be lots of creative fun.

But even better, some of it was one of my Very Favourite Things ... yummy silk thread!



Better than chocolate. And that's saying something.

Thanks so much Monica!
