The most recent hand project I've started on is this beauty above. Talk about LOTS and LOTS of cross stitching. I know. I bought the PDF pattern on Etsy a few months ago, and just a couple weeks ago decided I was ready to plunge in. It will be soooo exciting to see it completed!
Below I'm going to share with you some beautiful handstitched works. Some of the forms are different (crewel, most just embroidery). Enjoy the eye candy!
Crewel Embroidery. I absolutely LOVE this.
I love Anna Michelle's work, and this ballerina is no exception.
Raindrops keep fallin' on my head..... Simple, but packs lots of punch in all the colors, don't you think?
I bought this PDF pattern already, and am looking forward to making it. How can you resist a cute tiger??
I LOOOOVVVVE Rita Hayworth's blouse in this photo!!! All the attention to detail + the styling = magnificent. It doesn't even seem to bother me that the photo's in black and white so I can't see color. I can just imgaine.....
Anna Maria Horner put this little birdie on a sash for her daughter a few years ago. Cutest thing.
