i get excited.......................

I tend to get a tad excited when I see finished projects. Claire arrived with her wonderful wall-hanging which she worked on in my classes at Maleny Magic.

 
Claire's work is full of interesting stitch combinations.


Quirky spiders................and couched thread


feather stitches, wheatear, buttons


bugs, whipped chain, herringbone etc,etc,etc


a little bit of Brazilian embroidery here and there..........


I so enjoy her clean seam treatments.................lovely and strong...


just one or two bits of braid or trim..............


.......everything else is created by her.............


...that includes the beaded daisy chain in the block below.

 
Thank you, Claire, for allowing me to share you beautiful work.

  1. this piece is beautiful. The first thing that strikes me is the wonderful bright colors. I love how they are not confined to match each other. I'm sure that is not how to explain it correctly but it is just perfection.

  2. So BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I spent at least an hour looking at every single block just studying all of the gorgeous stitching with plans to go back and study it in further detail later! Thank you for sharing Claire's work. I noticed so many unique compound seam embroidery (at least unique to me!). I also admired how she used so many
    different threads, ribbons, beads, sequins and just everything used just on one motif--all of the layers just complemented one another so beautifully. Inspiring!!

    Please forward my complements to Claire! Thank you.
