1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Altered Photo Pearls of my Heart on: March 07, 2013 02:56:27 PM


This is my contribution to the challenge. I am a new member of Craftster and also found out about the challenge on Feeling Stitchy. My grandmother taught me needlework some 20 years ago and the challenge inspired me to pick up the needle once again and create an ode to my grandmother showing the line of descent from her to my children.

The photo was printed on cotton. I used DMC embroidery silk for the embroidery, as well as heirloom metal yarn lace and beads I inherited from my grandmother. My children contributed in their choice of colours (each flower represents one of my children although their names, unfortunately, as not as visible as I hoped - I will probably unpick this and use another colour) and gold yarn for the connecting links.

While I was away to a knitting club this evening my youngest daughter, who is three years old, made her own contribution by applying her "I like" stamp to the fabric. I am so grateful I took these pictures before I left! Hopefully I will be able to remove it if I carefully hand wash it... Otherwise there will be a decidedly modern touch to the piece ;-)
