Embellisher AT Work Again


I love trees and this scene stole my heart...so I had to make it into a postcard...

The trees were done with my sewing machine using a satin stitch.., then I placed the different wool roving colors to create the leaves , flowers etc.....and used my embellisher to punch in the fibres... After I completed this step I applied lots of french knots with embroidery floss to the various flower areas.Lots of fun.

I think it is the shadows on the pictures that makes the edge look crooked!!! They are straight believe me VBG








Here's a dessert scene post card that I had fun working with. Feel the warmth?


The card really is square!!!! don't know why it looks crooked??

These are lovely. It doesn't look square because of the angle the picture was taken on. It is nearly impossible to get them completely straight. ;)

AN embellisher is a marvelous thing if what you've made is any indication. I don't know which of these I like better.

Hi Grace,
I was so excited to see you here my friend,,, I know how busy you are.... minor statement eh!!;-}
Thanks for your kind comments on my cards,, It seems to be the favorite thing to do at the moment, altho I have had to change gears and put a binding on a queen size whole cloth quilt I quilted. It has to be done for a quilt show our guild is putting on at the end of the month.... Honestly.... trying to keep all the saucers on a stick is hard!!!!!!!!!!!!!
