Butterfly girl embroidery

Just a quick post to share a piece of embroidery that I recently finished for a swap with Aneela of comfortstitching fame. I based this piece on Freedom, a print by one of my favorite artists, Sarah of Sarah Jane Studios (with permission, of course). See the original print here.

Embroidery for Aneela

This piece was a lot of fun to create. I had to take a short break from hand stitching, but the embroidery bug seems to have bitten again. More soon ...

  2. Oh wow! I *love* that! The way the skirt fabric just becomes part of the embroidery design. How clever! I never would have think to do that...
