Creative Inspiration!

Having recently completed several very enjoyable embroidery blocks following the 'Le Jardin' Quilt project created for the Girls Own Stitching Club by Bronwyn Hayes of Red Brolly Designs, I decided I would try my hand at drawing my own embroidery design to stitch.  I looked through some of my different books for inspiration and I decided to draw a watering can and some flowers.


I traced my sketched design onto some fabric, pressed some interfacing to the back (to prevent thread ends showing through to the front of the embroidery) and spent a very enjoyable afternoon choosing thread colours and stitching.


The stitched picture does vary slightly from the original sketch as I had to allow for the size of the frame I wanted to put it in but, overall it is quite similar and, I am pleased with this first attempt.  Here it is framed and hanging on the wall!
