Great hat! I like how the pattern shows off the yarn!

I don't think it looks bad, I like it!

Embroidery is really not about being 'perfect' (whatever that is...) I think, and I find your bracelet really pretty. It reminds me of summer and surf and sun. Keep embroidering!

Wow! This looks sooo cozy!
The contrast in colours in materials is great, the shape is very cool - I really love it!

P.S. How big is it?

It does look like an angel! These are very beautiful, if I could get ahold of them, I'd definitely buy them  Wink

That is so beautiful - the longer I'm looking at it and the more details I'm discovering, the more interesting it gets!
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: What do you embroider on? I need ideas! on: September 01, 2007 12:30:10 AM
Polo shirts are great material, I think.
The fabric gives you a little orientation, and you can embroider something small and funny or a monogram where others have their crocodile. Thread in the same colour looks just as good as contrast colours.

Thank you kellen, but I like them so much (they each have their own personality - creepy...) that I also just give them away to friends and family.

I cut a  circle of fabric, stuff it with a bit of batting, shove in the steelwool and sew gathers around the edge and pull it up tight so it is like a button of fabric. I then add another glob of glue into the cup and put the stuffed "button" inside and hold it down until the glue sets, about 3-4 minutes.

I use pretty much the same method, without the steel wool - don't like the feeling of needle on steel. Also, I think it's good to check how easily a needle goes through the fabric. Sometimes fabrics are woven so tight, the needles leave holes and it's hard to get them through.

They are really nice - I actually made something like that a few months ago, after being inspired by a woman selling teacup-pincushions on etsy.
Here are mine:


I only had one espresso cup by hand, so I used tiny flower pots and a bowl. Of course, my favorite is the strawberry...

After just reading for a long time, this is my first post - because I am sooo amazed by your dress!
I believe it's just perfect as it is, very hot and not matron-like at all in my eyes. The frills go so well with the simplicity of the rest of it.
