This past week I turned this freehand sketchFlower meadow embroidery

Into this

Flower meadow embroidery

It’s not taken from a pattern, I couldn’t find the exact thing I wanted but I was inspired by this off the DMC stand at the CHSI Stitches show

I threw in some other wild looking flowers andย chose my colours and made myself stick to them.

And did a little every night.

Last night was the big reveal, when I washed away the stabiliser.


Ta dah!

I’m going to stretch it over a small canvas frame, but that’ll have to wait until the weekend.
Meanwhile my hands have been busy with a small monkey.

Crochet monkey
Remember these from round about a year ago? A welcome to the world gift for my OH’s new grandson, Henry.


They were all loved but the orange monkey became a firm favourite. Apparently he is looking a little worse for wear and occasionally needs a good wash. A stand-in has been requested! It is an absolute pleasure:)

Love, Lucie xx

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  1. Lovely embroidery and I remember you making the animals. Such a great collection. The orange monkey is certainly the standout colour.

    The embroidery is beautiful! I love that stabilizer, makes design so much easier, doesn’t it? The colors you chose are so bright and cheerful, glad you stuck with them!
