3  felt embroidered stuffed NŌM gnome in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by merwing on: April 13, 2008 12:29:17 PM
I made this guy based on my clay NOM figures I make, he is completely hand sewn from felt. My husband even has "claimed" him so I think he must be pretty cool. Wink

lots of my embroidery starts out that way. I do a lot of tiny, random drawings in my sketchbook and many of them turn into embroidery. Smiley This one's called Growing. I wish spring was here.

I made some embroidered buttons with my button machine for the Samper! I think they came out cute, and look so pretty together. Smiley

8  Doodle Stitching- My book is here!! in Needlework: Completed Projects by merwing on: August 26, 2007 02:48:36 PM
Howdy Craftsters. This is Leah, the Craftster admin. I know some of y'all have been expressing concerns that this post borders on breaking the "no advertising" rule. But I think that since merwing is a long standing active member here on Craftster, it's AOK by me for her to share her big achievement here. -- Leah

(Thank you Leah!)

It's finally arrived! My embroidery book, Doodle Stitching: Fresh and Fun Embroidery for Beginners is now available and I am soooo excited to share it with you! Grin It's full of lots of fun projects, patterns and ideas to incorporate hand embroidery into your life. Here are some sneak peaks, I would love to hear what you think!  Cheesy

9  new art work and my Book cover! in Needlework: Completed Projects by merwing on: July 11, 2007 07:30:22 AM
Here's my latest finished embroidery art. It's called "thinking." It was fun because I kinda made a lot of it up as I went along.

(edit) book cover was removed per craftster rules.  Embarrassed
