Oh my gosh, what did you do there? Please, please a close up? I can see the sublime stitching but am so curious about the colouring and the EYES!
Will you make a round book?

Thank you!  This is stitched from three different fabrics - the base fabric of leaves, a flower motif, and the bee motif.

Sorry for the blur:



Yes, the book will be round.   Smiley

Oh Ludi, I'm so glad you never fail to amaze me. I love your embroidery - I have a piece on my wall right now - but I'm still caught off guard by the sheer artistry of it. This bee piece is amazing. It's so perfectly simple and yet unmistakably you.

Thanks so much for sharing it with us all. We owe you a lot!  Kiss

Ludi--another stunning piece of work!  I love how you are blending in fabrics with your impeccable embroidery!

I also want to add that I use my butterfly needlebook daily and still am awed by the practicality and beauty of it...it is a special treasure of mine!

It's just so incredible, what a treasure. I'm really looking forward to seeing your journal, how exciting!
I was looking at my pieces of boro from you the other day and thinking about how to honour them with just the right creation. I haven't had that a-ha moment yet but I know it will come.
