Christmas Tree Shadow Trapunto Embroidery

Hi blogging friends Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net  

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!
