I will have action shots very soon.  I am having trouble finding myself a photographer (or model for that matter).  I was hoping to take pictures in the cafe at last Tuesday's s'n'B, but it wasn't to be.   Lips sealed

I got my apron pieces back on Monday night so here's some photos of everyone's lovely work. There are a few gaps, so I might add some more things before I sew it together, but then there will be an action shot (eventually).

Thanks everyone, all the embroidery is in different styles, but I love them all! You should be able to see bigger pictures by clicking but I didn't want to overload everyone's computers.



From Miss_Vicki. I love the superhero crafting fairy!



From cmc_aust (I'm so jealous of your french knot skills)



From librarylass. How did you get so much character into that stick figure?



From jane feebles. I love the design (and the stitching!) such a great idea!



From sharre. I love the little metallic needle, such attention to detail.



This one's mine but I thought I should include it anyway!

Once again thanks to everyone for embroidering my apron. If you've got better pictures post them too!

Ok so I finally got my camera working, there is something seriously wrong with it as it will not talk to the computer any more but I digress here are the previously promised pictures of everyone's beauuuuuuuuuutiful works  Cheesy (scuze the flashed out quality)

the whole piece:


cmc_aust's colourful Australia (awesome stiching):


Starberri's cute as Giraffe (I love giraffe's and tiny stitches)


Jane Feebles matryoshka doll (the strawberry and the doll's hair are incredible in person):


Librarylass's vino (her chain stitch is so neat!):


Miss Vicki's adorable scorpion (the texture of all the different stitches is really cool):


Thank you all it is fabulous! Now I just have to put on a backing  Cheesy

Here's a photo of the giraffe I did on yours sharre. I post stalked you and saw that you collected giraffes!




It was good being near the end of your ring, because Miss_Vicki's was the only embroidery I hadn't seen. I particularly liked the curl in Jane Feeble's doll's hair, but they were all very lovely.

Thanks for posting a better pic starberrii, I think my camera hates me. And thanks everyone my piece is really cool. Starberrii's apron is brilliant as well. Anyone else have completed items to post?
