|I think the purple is my favourite|
For my parents in law I made an applique picture of a cottage and then added hand embroidered details. It uses a variety of my favourite scraps of fabric and some old and new (to me) embroidery stitches. I really enjoyed making it and I'd like to make some more in the future. I need more people to give them too! Some of the fabric choices include red velvet that my mother in law gave me originally (it was her mothers), green brushed cotton from my bridesmaids dresses and one of my favourite poly cotton prints
As you can see we had it framed before we gave it to them. As you've probably guessed, I once again for got to take photos before we wrapped it so these are photos I took in their house on boxing day (it's currently pride of place in the lounge).
Have a nice weekend! On Monday I plan to show one of the things I made myself during my week off!
