And now, for some Friday Finishes! Well - I signed up for THREE swaps. (WHY MONIKA!? WHY!?). lol I couldn't resist. For one swap, I have to make three 'Self Portraits'. They are nearly finished. For the other, I have to make 'Year of the Dragon' themed cards... nearly finished. The third swap is for 'Embellished Owls'. I didn't think I would join this last one, but then I started staring at this fabric. I think it came to me from a swap via the mail. I'm not sure!
I have never used those self-threading needles before. I change thread colors A LOT in my work, and I must say that I absolutely love these! 'POP' and it's threaded.
I stared at the fabric for a while, and then after nearly three hours of sewing, I did this!
It's all by hand with two strands of embroidery floss, and ooooh it's so cute! It's so cute!
I did the borders with a decorative stitch, and then narrow satin stitch on the machine. There was the before & after shot. It turned out so lovely, and I adore the colors!!
The question is, "Whoooooooo's going to get it in the mail?" ; )
