Time to share again...

Oh My! No new posts since August? How can that be???, family and being busy with doing different crafts. I have been knitting, crocheting, sewing, drawing, gluten free cooking and embroidery.

Here's a photo of my newest embroidery project (the only one of my crafts that I have actually photographed so far-- and that was done for a contest by the designer of the design I embroidered)

My Valentine's Embroidery: Design by Gina Mazarazzo
It was done quickly the day before Valentine's to make it in to the contest.

I loved the design and how the center design in the heart looked like a butterfly.

I'm a basic stitch kind of embroiderer --this was done with, chain stitch, satin stitch, back stitch, stem stitch and french knots.

The design left all the decisions to the person doing the stitching--I like that kind of pattern--I get to choose the colors and the stitches I want to use.

This looks very springy to me, Hearts, butterfly, 'flowers', 'leaves', stems. The big heart done in the chain stitch in gold is like the unending loop of love. :)

I'll be working on getting more photos of my creative efforts posted soon. :)

Remember to get out and do something creative!
