embroidery hoops

this is the embroidery picture i made for my mum's birthday. i enjoyed it so much that i have now started a slightly more epic embroidery project, sewn onto a natural linen canvas. as i did the present for my mum i started using new and different stitches, and realised that i am really neat and tidy with my sewing! also with lettering.

when sewing, i don't draw patterns on the fabric, i just sew freehand and try not to restitch - i like being able to look at a piece and know that it is handmade and not machined by a robot. although, my mum still doesn't believe me when i say i sewed it by hand!
