Lately I have been going back to my roots and creating more creweled pieces. I love the way the finished pieces look so much more than ‘plain’ embroidery pieces (which I love too!), but creweled pieces just take sooo long. This is not so good for me because once I start a piece I tend to not stop working on it until it is done. My back does not like that, considering I slouch the entire time. Yesterday I spent majority of my day (seven episodes of Ugly Betty to be more specific) creating this creweled bicycle.
It is done on a medium weight linen fabric, and in a wooden frame which I painted white.
This piece is also up for sale in the etsy shop, you can see more of it here.
Just a reminder, tonight at midnight this giveaway ends!
Now I’m off to ride my bike to work! Happy Monday, all!
