I have been cranking out embroideries like crazy in the past couple weeks! Between trying to restock my shops, and crafting for swaps, it think my fingers may fall off! Anyhow here are just a few of the ones i have finished within the past couple weeks-

I love this one. Catching fireflies in my grandparents yard during the summer is one of my favorite memories




Here's a jelly i made for an OWS swap-




And this one was made by request. I really like how the bacon came out, lots of texture



Thanks for looking! Hope you like!

these are great, your stitching is beautiful! I love the simplicity of the firefly one, and the beautiful colours of the jellyfish!
The bacon one is great too, but I'm a vegetarian and bacon is a meat I really can't stand to smell cooking!

Really beautiful ideas and work.  I think the best element of all three is your sense of composition and balance.  The simplicity of the fireflies is the most compelling I think.  I've mostly done cross stitch but all this fabulous and unique embroidery is really inspiring me.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
