It's like the galloping ick - I can't seem to stop adding embroidery to this landscape. I guess it will tell me when I should be done....
- Perhaps some of you might like to try doing THIS.
- THIS caught my eye - a fun project to make for little ones. And THIS one too!
- THIS is another fun project and would make wonderful gifts.
- THIS is supposedly for carrying dolls but I can think of all sorts of other uses and I'm sure you can too.

Loving those white daisies and the pink Queen Anne's Lace flowers!! Lovely work Happy 4th hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
Thank you Julierose - I have a problem knowing when to stop!Delete
Your embroidery is so pretty!ReplyDelete
Thank you Vicki!Delete
Your embroidered flowers are incredible. Keep on stitching!ReplyDelete
Hah - as if I need any encouragement to carry on!Delete
Beautiful. I love those white daisies too, and I'm wondering the stitch is you used to create the petals.ReplyDelete
Hmmm - I don't know the name of the stitch but I think it's buttonhole bar (?) - at any rate I did two straight stitches and then buttonholed the length of them so they're more or less free-standing, at least in the middles. Clear as mud?Delete
Yes! I can totally picture that. Thanks for explaining. :)Delete
I think you need another daisy! To get an odd number, for balance. But yes, I know that feeling of just one more, just one more.ReplyDelete
There actually is one more - I didn't show the entire row of stitching in this photo.Delete
And aren't there a lot abusing the privilege of being stupid at this present time?? Love all your embroidery; so pretty.ReplyDelete
How true! Stupidity seems to reign supreme these days.Delete

All I can say is... Absolutely gorgeous, and yes I am sure you will be told when there is enough.ReplyDelete
I keep wanting to add more so I guess it's not enough quite yet!Delete
Love this, especially the daisies! It's such a pretty "field of flowers". Jillayne (No matter how hard I try I can't sign in and my URL comes up invalid so "Anonymous" it is!)ReplyDelete
There's a lot of 'anonymous' going around it seems. I think the daisies are my favourites too.Delete
I love, love your bountiful "flower garden."ReplyDelete
Thank you! I've claimed a definite degree of artistic license over the original photo, that's for sure.Delete
Sherry of createology: Mary Anne Dear your embroidery is lovely and adds so much definition and depth to the landscape. Great links as always. The felted vessels are amazing. Summer Smiles…ReplyDelete
I seem to have to add embroidery to my landscapes - must be my crazy quilting background coming out in me.Delete
Such pretty embroidered details Mary Anne, I am sure the landscape will let you know when it is enough! Christine xxReplyDelete
I think I'm nearly there with this one - just have to finish up a couple of areas and then it will be on to the background.Delete
Your garden is growing. I feel it's like what we've been up to the past few weeks. I think we're done planting and then my husband will say "I think we need something over there" which means a visit to the nursery. I wish my yard looked as lovely as your quilt.ReplyDelete
Thank you Lorraine - kind words indeed!Delete
