Rather than just stitching out pictures, I decided to add a little bit of variety to my repertoire. How about stitching a free standing castle? The number of stitches that the machine lays down leaves the finished article quite thick so here is the result of lots of stitches on a dissolvable backing which washes away to leave a lace like effect.
Just need to put a tea light candle inside to heighten the effect (led lamp of course for safety).
The same freestanding technique can be applied to produce the lovely little butterfly seen here visiting my wolves……
I still prefer stitching out some of the lovely pictures though so here is my latest. A collection of blooms, grasses and pine cones from a woodland meadow.
91,000 stitches and 36 colour changes.
Enjoy life and take it easy. Stay safe.
