I do like to be beside the seaside...at sunset

More fun with the embellisher :-)

I made this fabric postcard for my mum. The background fabric is a scrap of denim. I needle punched wool rovings, scraps of different fabrics and yarns onto the background, then hand embroidered using running stitch, fly stitch, herringbone and crown stitch; and then there's the beaded bling factor.

I am pretty pleased with it and I think mum liked it.


  1. This is wonderful and I likke the idea of using the denim.

  2. Love it! What did you decide to use for the backing in the end?

  3. Glad you like it - I backed it with muslin bonded onto pelmet vilene and it seems to be stiff enough - although I must admit I didn't risk it in the postal service ;-)


I love comments! Please don't be shy :-)
