I've done a little more embroidery on my 2nd Hobbit Hole tea cozy today :) I'm finished with the machine embroidery and adding the flowers with simple hand embroidery..
I outlined in machine stitch everywhere that I wanted a feeling of depth.. around all the frames, the planks on the doors and round the outside of the house (apart from the bottom.
On the back I wrote with my sewing machine :) in red and gold thread 'in a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit' - did it in the same way as with the last one; traced on to tissue paper then stitched through the words on tissue using the darning foot on my sewing machine (forgot to take any photos of this.. must of been all the concentrating :)
The start of the hand embroidery.. I just HAD to add a clematis to this one! I have a gorgeous Montana clematis outside my house.. it's absolutely smothered with flowers right now, but last week it looked so sweet and pretty with more buds than flowers.. that's what I am aiming for.
I've got the Hobbit garden all planned out in my mind.. more pics soon
