|Leigh is another of those amazing people who do hand embroidery. Then to take all these little fiddly bits from your stash and to create something like this. Astounding.|
Wool yarn couched down into a flower.
|This is the original fabric, but then I had others that went with it, but didn't necessarily match the "theme", and added those.|
|First, let me say that anyone who does hand embroidery astounds me. But this many blocks? And the detail? Wow.|
|Now the embroidery begins. I stitched about 1/4" from all the exterior seams, and echoed around the stitching. then a background fill, a different one for each block.|
|Since "The Black Cauldron" serves hot soups, I quilted "steam" in the background.|
|What fun to pull out my rulers, idea books and often times, just look at the fabric to see what it needed.|
I couldn't resist adding in feathers every once in a while.
