My next 2 finishes

In the last few weeks I have finished 2 longish term UFOs, so thought it was past time to post them here.

The embroideries for the blocks were done when I was learning to use the embroidery software for my machine.  I used fabrics that I had hand dyed.  The border is not the bright pink as shown in the bottom photo - it is much more subtle than that.  Not sure what happens to make the colours go so off.

The second finish is Daisy Street


I enjoyed doing these stitcheries over a couple of years, and finally got it assembled.  Last weekend I did the quilting and it is finished.

Yes, both lovely. It is strasnge about colours and photos - mayeb we all need a photo studio as well as a sewing room??. Love the Daisy Street. Something really unusual.

Oh they are gorgeous! So did you do that embroidery on your machine? I had just started learning to embroider when my thumb started acting up. I probably need to buy me a good embroidery machine. Love your work!!!

I love the black background on your embroidery! How do you trace the design onto dark fabric? An inquiring mind would like to know. LOL!
