Christmas Tree Shadow Trapunto Embroidery
Hi blogging friends
Apart from my cardmaking, I dabble in other crafts and I thought I would show you a photo of my Shadow Trapunto embroidery. I bought the kit at a Craft Show from a lovely lady called Annie London of "Designer Stitches" - an Australian designer who has revived the art of Shadow Trapunto embroidery and is now the world's leading supplier of kits and patterns - and thought it would be a good idea to finish my embroidery in time for Christmas. Annie was so helpful and showed me how to do the technique and honestly, I could have sat there all day and watched her - Annie is truly amazing!! The embroidery is so different to anything I have ever tried and I found it so relaxing to sit there and stitch away whilst watching TV.
It is actually far easier than it looks and I really love the quilted effect. Here is a close-up - and you can always click on the pictures for a bigger look:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
