Remember the goldwork & silk Tudor-style rose? I’ve not done anything with the sample I stitched, I suppose because it is “just” a sample. I’m using it for reference as I work on the Medallion project. Eventually, I will be stitching five more of those roses. (Yeeeeesh. What was I thinking?)
But I love seeing what other people do, when they embroider a project initiated here on Needle ‘n Thread, and here’s a great example of a beautiful finish!
Elena of Coeur de Freesia, a blog written in French that also focuses on needlework, sent me a photo of what she did with her Tudor rose, and I think it’s just gorgeous! She made the piece into a very attractive tape-measure cover.
Don’t you think it’s charming? Such a pretty little treasure!
It ties in with the Home Sweet Home giveawayCarolyn Pearce’s new book, Home Sweet Home: An Embroidered Workbox – and I’m currently giving away two copies of it over here. If you’d like a chance to win your own copy of the book, read the Home Sweet Home give-away article and follow the instructions before tomorrow morning!
Hope your Monday’s terrific! (even if it is Monday!)
