and I have to say, I'm pretty pleased with the results and my mum loved it.
I got M to draw a picture on some Calico and I embroidered over the top. I was going to let her sew it herself but she really struggled with the needle, so it really was a joint effort. M picked all the colours and told me where to put what, so its her picture really.
I just hope my dad likes it!

Look what they are doing to my lovely little tree!
And they are very rude, because last year they did the same thing and didnt even so much as grow their cocoons here.
So to summarise. They eat my little lovely drooping tree, naff off and we dont even get a sniff of a Butterfly.
M loves them though and they've provided alot of entertainment. So I guess I am grateful for that.

I was asked by one of my "customers" (oooh get me!) to embroider her daughters names or initials on each doll. I was going to just the initial but what the hell, lets go whole hog and get the lot on it. Plus Chloe is a damn fine name if you ask me ;)
The next doll will be pretty similar apart from the fabric and the hair will be "blonde". I'll add a couple of other touches to it as the brief is for it to be girly.
Last week I also finished my toadstool for Lucykates swap. There are two other pieces to go with it but it would be impossble to take a photo of them and you not know what they are. So just in case my swap partner Melissa is reading, you only get a sneaky look.
I dont think this gives too much away. Well I hope it doesnt!
This will be winging its way over the Atlantic to the US of A next week.
