Crafting to keep insanity at bay.

I have been practicing my embroidery a lot (seriously a lot). I've jumped on the twinchie bandwagon with gusto and have made quite a few tiny little gems so far, all 1.5" to 2" (there is one so far that is only 1" but those are hard!). I'd love to hear your thoughts on all my little stitches  Smiley

This one was left unmounted so my swap partner could frame it as she wished.








An experimental little stitch on glossy cardstock.


Eastern bluebird


This is the true inchie - 1 inch big! - made up of a ton of picot stitches..


Great Mormon Butterfly
















I'm thinking to mix and match and pick ones of a similar theme to display in a shadowbox frame, probably 3 x 3 set up or 4 x 4. But first I'm going to keep stitching because it is the best form of therapy that I've found  Smiley Thanks so much for looking.

Thank you  Smiley You continue to be a source of inspiration as well.

Now if I could just mind meld with you and absorb your super skill for color blending and realistic stitching I'd be all set! (The bird was totally inspired by your stitches - the most color changes I've used in 2 inches or less)  Wink

These are amazing.  I didn't even know what stumpwork was until I saw your earlier post.  That spider took my breath away.  I was like Jack Skellington saying "what's this, WHAT'S THIS" as I googled stumpwork as quickly as I could.  Now I have a new board on my pinterest and am pinning away.  Thank you so much for sharing.

Wow, wow, wow, and more wow!!  So much squee worthy stitching, my pinning finger is cramping!  I'm suuuuper impressed with all of these.  Of course you know I love all the buggies the best!  Cheesy  I feel honored that the lovely monarch is mine all mine! Some of my other faves are the dandelion, the tree, the mormon butterfly, and the black lacewing-looking bug with white wings!
