You Make Me Smile

A spread in my altered book Rooie. The funny face is drawn by my husband, it made me smile!

I made this ornament for my mother’s 80th birthday. I embroidered the seams with tied herringbone stitch, feather stitch, up and down buttonhole stitch, French knots and feathered chain stitch. The beads came from old pieces of jewellery from my youngest daughter. She’s still in Cape Town and this way she kind of joined the party.

Teesha Moore inspired cat patches

Last year I participated in a series of swaps for Teesha Moore inspired patches. This swap was cat themed. I used a scrap of cute cat fabric for my patch and decorated it with running stitch, stem stitch, French knots, a button and letter beads.
And this is the cute patch Jenny made for me. Se used a cat selvedge and pretty beads on it! Jenny wrote about the making of this patch here.

Birthday card for Ritva

Ritva was the last birthday girl in the Fibre Fever group. I trapped a few sequins between organza and fabric. I used stacked herringbone stitch, chain stitch and crossed buttonhole stitch to secure them. The edge of the organza is secured with cross stitches.
