Just for fun~

After that monster curtain project I was sitting with bunches of floss that were not bad, but that I did not bother to wind back onto each bobbin. So I started doodling, and I found it very relaxing.

First the wip~

Then the finished product~

And now more close shots than were most likely needed~
I like the little pear that I tossed in there- this was my first time doing a whipped chain stitch and I think I love it.

This was the first time that I played with Bullion stitches, they were tricky at first but I found them to be a neat experience and I keep thinking that now I need to find a pattern and add cat tails to it.

I also love the chance to just play with the stitches and try things that normally I may not just because it does not fit into the pattern.

I have a new Wip that I'm making for my cubicle at work... I'll post shots later this weekend I think as long as time allows~ these images should allow clicking for larger sizes.
Have a great weekend!

  6. Hi, I also found you via Craftster. Great work! I also love the curtain. I don't think I will have the patience for such a big project though. Is it all your own designs?

  9. I just happened to stumble upon your blog and was awesomely struck by the colors and the way this doodle was done. Very impressive! I was going thru almost each stitch that was done on teh doodle tryign to recognise them, especially since I am working on a stitch tutorial project myself. :)

    You most certainly may.

    "hi, wonderful piece, but i cant find the pear and its driving me crazy!!!"

    It's hanging from the Green tree like vine- my husband thinks it is too pointy for a pear but I still see a pear when I look at it!

    I am just thrilled that you all like it! Thank you for you encouraging comments

  15. I saw this on a January post @ Mr X Stitch and just wanted to say how absolutely amazing it is! I love the idea of doodle embroidery - did you draw it first or just make it up as you embroidered? It's lovely!
