So I just finished the second round of the Jim Henson appreciation swap and I embroidered this on a purse for my swap partner:



It has Gonzo being shot from a cannon while Camilla looks on.  I do love the muppets and had a really great time working on this piece.

Like a moron, I forgot to take pictures before I sent and so my partner was nice enough to post pictures when she got her package.

Fantastic! I love Gonzo (and all of the Muppets!) and I love that you included one of his beloved chickens Wink And you gave her such an adoring look, too  Cheesy

Where are you finding black fabric to embroider on?  or rather, what are you embroidering on?  I love it... plus, I love the muppets... fantastic!

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.

Thanks so much for the nice comments...  I'm glad that Camilla's adoring look came through since that's exactly what I was going for.

I actually found super cheap black denim on sale at Joann's a few months ago and was really excited since it seemed perfect for purses, it's also really great to sew with since it has a little bit of stretch to it and is very forgiving when I mess up (which is often).
