Embroideria

I've gotten a serious wiff of embroideria. First I did this snow flaky flower in traditional style - on a T-shirt. Which is really silly because we all know how long a cheap t-shirt from H&M lasts. I tried to put on a buddhist approach, you know like the monks who "paint" in coloured sand..?
Then I made a striped shirt for Mr Helylle's birthday on Wednesday. And had to put a little bird on it. It's a lovebird, naturally. (It's OK, he never reads my blog. Or will he now with his birthday coming up??)

I've also finished a little bag in felt and appliqué, with pearls and leather lining. Quite pleased with this one, actually!




By the way, the reason for my absence is that - believe it or not - Mr Helylle poured a beer on the keyboard this past Saturday. Don't pour anything on your keyboards, it kills all the keys.
By the way 2; I met Jeanette of Handmade last night - had to hand over the yarn. She is as lovely as her blog - but you figured that out long time ago!

Fint broderi!
Om t-shirten från H&M "dör"så kan du ju alltid applicera broderiet på något annat sedan...
