E is for Embroidery

this is a project i have yet to finish. (that pretty such describes everything right now) the design is from a vintage piece of wrapping paper. if anyone wants it i can send it to you. now that i think about it, it would look gorgeous in redwork! but alas it is green (that also pretty much describes everything right now)!

this is a piece i did in college. it was for a class project, we had to make something that was eastern in nature. i decided bamboo embroidery on red silk. done. that described what i loved about asia, visually at least. i haven't done anything with it yet. i have been thinking about just a simple frame. does anyone have ideas??


  1. I love your embroidery, especially the green one. It's so beautiful. I think embroidery can look really stunning just framed in it's hoop.

  2. thankyou so much for sharing your experience with anxiety on my blog. i have added your blog to my fave list! how is your beautiful girl today? they are so cute when they can't tell you "NO!". enjoy!

  3. This work is fantastic!

    I have a baby blanket I'm embroidering for my first nephew. I started it before he was born. He's now 23.

  4. I'd love to have the pattern you used for the green piece. It's gorgeous!

  5. I love the chain stitch embroidery. As a redworker I agree with you. This pattern would be wonderful in red. But it is gorgeous in green.
