My embroidery gallery grows


Help, I’m completely addicted to free motion embroidery!  My wall is now sporting 4 pictures and I have another one half made, but not yet ready to be put on display.


This is my fabric image of my eldest son:


Like the previous fabric image I did, looking at it close up it seems a bit weird & I did get complaints from him that I’d used flowery fabric and its a bit girly!  

This picture was my attempt at being romantic for Mr D&D’s birthday last week. 


It’s the words and music for ‘our’ song, the first one we danced to, many years ago. (22 to be precise!)  It was a bit fiddly to make, and the machine sewed writing did turn out to be a bit like a young child’s scrawl, but he appreciated all the work that went into it.  I was dreading cutting out all the circles by hand as they’re pretty small, but then I realised I had just the thing – Sizzix die cutter, with the Hello Kitty die – her eyes and nose shapes were just the perfect size and shape.

What’s the most romantic thing you’ve ever made or received?




  1. Wow, these look great on the wall, I'm glad you put them up, love the music notes so details and pretty :)

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  2. The music pic is just fab - what a wonderful idea - bet you'd make a killing with those on Not on the High Street :)
