Here is a little machine embroidery that I recently finished. I enjoyed this one, using very different colours than in the past. I decided to use a piece of fabric that I had painted previously that was at the time a complete dud. I painted over it afresh and found the process of not starting with white fabric interesting and satisfying.

Funny thing happened when I was scanning the embroidery – there was a little creature perched on top!! So I didn’t crop him out of the image, so you can see him sitting there dreaming about being inside the scene of flowers and grass. Poor thing had to go out into the miserable rain!
