13  crystal gayle embroidery in Needlework: Completed Projects by merwing on: February 15, 2007 06:19:50 PM

I'm working on a sort of 'childhood heroes' series of embroideries. This is Crystal Gayle, to go with the Shel Silverstein http://www.dreamfollow.com/emb2.html I did. More heroes are on the way. Smiley

14  Hug a Tree in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by merwing on: February 09, 2007 10:31:25 AM


I made some 'happy little trees', they are so fun to work on! I love making stuff that doesn't need a pattern, I just cut them out. these have little embroidered bird or squirrels, and are weighted on the bottom so they stand up on their own. I need a whole forest of them.

(sorry, huge weird al fan.  Wink )

I made this Yoda for my husband for Christmas. I thought his eyes were a little wonky, but Josh loved him. He says they make him look like a Simpson's character.  Grin

16  Spring embroidery art pieces on canvas in Needlework: Completed Projects by merwing on: January 28, 2007 08:29:26 AM

so, I had a pile of mini canvases sitting around and no real intention to ever paint on them (I'm more of a watercolor gal.) so I pulled the canvas off the frames, embroidered it, and stuck it back on. voila, perfect little art pieces! the white ones are canvas, the green one is green fabric.

17  The Lady and the Unicorn (and don't forget the Lion) in Needlework: Completed Projects by merwing on: November 08, 2006 08:37:13 AM


I made this based on the Lady and Unicorn tapestries, yeah the poor lion gets left out even though he's in every one too. Sad  here are the originals if you're interested, they're actually weavings: http://orion.luc.edu/~avande1/unicorn.html
it's all hand embroidery. It's kinda fun to work on a color other than white.

19  tree bunny embroidery in Needlework: Completed Projects by merwing on: October 20, 2006 10:44:43 AM


here's a little tree-eared bunny embroidery. It's actually a little quilt, it just doesn't have finished edges yet.

my latest embroidery... can you tell I'm loving spring? Wink
I stretched this one on a canvas frame. I think I like that better than framing it behind glass. it can breathe this way. Smiley
