Stitching on the Cruise

While I was cruising on the high seas I kept myself busy doing some silk ribbon embroidered brooches.
The last lot that I made in the middle of the year have all sold and I thought that I could make some more while I was away.
It was lovely sitting out on our balcony stitching away in the perfect light while the rest of the world drifter by.
All I have to do now is glue the brooch pins on the back and they are done.
The colours are fairly true and they really are pretty.







The next thing I have to do after Christmas is get all my stuff ready for the workshop that I am going to do with Karen Ruane from Contemporary Embroidery which is called Embroider Embellish Create so if you want to join take a peek you may want to do it as well.

These little brooches are exquisite Doreen - what a lovely holiday project. Looking forward to seeing what you get up to on that workshop.

Great to see you home safe, sounds like you had a real experience. Good for you. I agree with your comments. Why would you want them to change the way they live. What a dull place the world would be if we were all the same!
I love these too Doreen, where do you sell them? I would love to buy one.

They are so pretty!!

Beautiful Doreen, no wonder you sold out of the others. What lovely buttons they would also make for a very special garment. Look forward to seeing what you do in your new workshop.

Dear Doreen
You're busy as a bee - beautiful brooches.

Like Carole I'm interested in buying one also - but knowing you - you probably donate them to the guild!!!

Happy Christmas to you and S.
love

I think that would be total bliss - to be able to sit on a ship and stitch the hours away. Ahhhhh....
