thread sketching

My first feeble attempts at thread sketching. I colored the canvas cloth with Glimmer Mist, hand colored the tulip with colored pencils, and then free motion stitched. I actually like it a lot.

  
This is for a page I am making for the swap group.  There are ten of us...each making a page for each others books with the flower theme. I have a few more steps to do before I can send them out.  I will post when it's all finished.

  2. This is stunning, I really want to try machine embroidery (there just aren't enough hours in the day!).
