On the course we were machine embroidering pictures - I chose Sam Toft, for my inspiration - click here for her website, as I just love all her work. Both ladies have inspired me to create my own character - Podley - He is still a work in progress so you will have to wait for more on Podley.
For the moment - here are the three pieces I stitched.....
This is called - A little tenderness - I added the background and Mr Mustard's hat came out more of a cap than it should, and I was too 'scared' to do the faces. It is small - measuring 7.5 cm x 11 cm.
Next is my favourite as I have the print in my living room - It's called 'Taking the Girls Home' - I just love it! I also added the background - measures 6.5cm x 8.5cm (below it is the original)
