I was looking at Orone's lovely craftwork this morning and it reminded me of something I made before I started blogging. I made this embroidered picture as a Christmas gift for a friend. The sky was a bit more blue, but otherwise the photos are pretty close to the reality.
It's made up of all sorts of bits and pieces. The backing for this is actually a plastic lid! It was suppossed to be an embroidery hoop, but I couldn't find one big enough. So I used the top off an old biscuit tub instead.
The hands are knitted and the rainbow is embroidered. The stars are sequins. :-) The trees and grass are embroidered, but the big vine leaves are made of old lace I dyed green. The long dangly vine bits have bead flowers and little silver bells on them. It was great fun to make.
