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I wasn´t sure if I could post pictures of the work since they said it should be unpublished, so I rather played safe and waited.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 :)
