Hey Everyone,
 I haven't posted a project in about 3 years or more so I thought since I'm back and commenting all over the place I should share one of my recent ones.

I based this on an antique pattern of a rose bouquet. The outline is stitched. The red is painted. The leaves were first stitched in green and then painted with a brown/red colour. I actually used brown and mixed it with the red I used for the rose so that the tones would match. It's on 24 count linen in antique white. I've mostly stitched on muslin or other cottons and recently switched to the linen and I'm really happy with the way it looks. For me it's just a lot easier to work with and gives a cleaner stitch than when I was sewing on muslin. One thing I did notice is you can't use round hoops on linen unless they are larger than the design because as you can see it leaves a ring, I never had that issue with muslin. This took about 3 nights to complete and is about 7.5"x7". Anyways hope you like it!

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

Nice to see you posting your work. I dicovered your blog a few days ago via another blog and saw your video on thisishandmade. Please tell me you speed up that video because if not I am in serious envy & awe of your stitching speed! Cheesy
I really like the way you work with tattoo design and use colours, it shows in this piece to. What technique do you use to color your designs and dye the aida fabrics?

Thanks for the compliments Smiley

I didn't speed up that video. I didn't realize it myself until I watched it a couple of times.

I use an acrylic fabric paint to dye and paint my pieces.
