My "Save the world" piece and some bags

Hello, dear friends,

Remember, I told you how I entered an embroidery competition? The topic was how we can save the world with embroidery.
I wasn´t sure if I could post pictures of the work since they said it should be unpublished, so I rather played safe and waited.
Well, the results are on the website now, and I am not among the winners, but I have to say I don´t feel ashamed: those are all so fantastic pieces of art that I had absolutely no chance. It is a different dimension.
If you want to look at them, here.

But now, finally, I can show you my work. Here it is, and I am really proud of it. Just love how it turned out.

The text at the bottom is in Swedish and this is what it says:

Under this walnut shell there is a butterfly hiding from the rain - according to my 5-year-old friend, Lizi. This is to honour all that and all those who have to hide from the suffering of the world.

I don´t know yet what I will do with it. I don´t really have place for it at home, and I would be so happy if I could hang it somewhere where others can see it and get the message.

I have also been working on my commission. Here is the latest picture, although since I took it, I have done a lot, it is almost ready.

I have also been sewing a lot.

I made some teddy bears for the charity I sometimes help out. I made a bag for my daughter, and then a few more that I will try and sell in my webshop. Well, sounds a bit pretentious to call it a webshop, but perhaps I will be able to sell something this time :D Want to have a peek?

The teddy bears above, and my daughter´s bag bellow. She loved it.

And these are the ones I made for my shop:

I will soon be back with some more pictures, and a cross stitch pattern or two. Watch this place :)

Happy stitching.

Your Save the World piece is amazing. The tiny stitches, and the choice of colour and fabric give it a timeless feel. Just beautiful.

Thank you.

Good news: the organizers of the competition wrote to me that they want all the embroideries for the exhibition, not only the winners. So it will be on display with all the others. i am so proud.
