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?
