Thank you so much for sharing with us today.
Hello my name is Robin and I have been doing some kind of needle work for as long as I can remember. My grandmother is the one that taught me how to embroider and to crochet among other things. Here are a few samples of what I have done.
The first photo is a quilt that I made for my parents for Christmas in 1995 and really had no clue on how to quilt just did what I thought was the way to do it. I had all my siblings an there spouses and children do a simple trace around there hands and then I did the hand work I added each of there names and made this very large quilt (I have 3 sisters and 3 brothers).
The 2nd photo was stitched for my niece/nephew while my sister was pregnant but when we found out baby was to be a girl my sister asked me to stitch something else as she thought these colorful clowns were to boyish, LOL someday I will finish them into something fun.
The 3rd photo is some kitchen towels I did while learning a new technique with color crayons, these were lots of fun to make. You can also see me new kitten Marmalade helping out with the photo shoot. When looking for something to embroider I turn to color books for inspiration.
The 4th photo is what I did for this hop I used some cute little birds and the Presencia thread that Jane sent us and then made it into a cute pillow, as you can see from the photo it's not stuffed as I couldn't get a good photo of it that way. I also used very tiny buttons for my twister flower centers.
I hope that you have enjoyed what I have shared today and remember your project can be big or small and used in quilting or stand alone projects. Just pick up that needle and thread and go for it! :)
Enjoy! Robin @ http://robin-assweetaspeaches.blogspot.com/
