thursday = embroidery

this is my current embroidery wip {although there's no actual embroidery on it yet}:


I'm not sure where I'm going with it - I had a mental vision of what it would look like, but now I'm not so sure I can realize it in real life...I'm keeping my fingers crossed I can pull it off. {and yes, there are no hands on the clock because my vision involves incorporating a working clock mechanism - may well have bitten off more than I can chew on this one!}

moving onto today's embroidery transfers - I found these in the cut & loose pile:



can't help thinking about summer when I look at the second one...

happy stitching!

The cuckoo clock is amazing! Is it your own design, or from a kit?

And those transfers might be just the thing I need for my next project.

Oh, wow. It looks ambitious, but fabulous. I'd be willing to bet you pull if off perfectly. ;) What fabric is the applique part--felt or something else?

I think it looks fabulous too. Keep going, I think you might be surprised with the outcome! And I love the transfers for todays embroidery patterns! I think I am going to flip them, and draw them with prismacolor markers, frame em and put them up in my kitchen!!

I quite like how the clock is coming along even if it's not quite what you envisioned. I hope you keep at it a little longer!

Thank you so much for the embroidery pattern. I am on an embroidery kick at the moment. Love what you started and I'm sure it will be as you envisioned it. Make it the way you see it in your head...it will probably turn out better than you imagined! have an incredible day!
Blessings,
Debbie

Thanks for the transfer designs. . . I love your cuckoo clock--somehow my 3 year old thought he had to have one for Christmas, so we have one and he is checking the time several times daily--great motivator:). . . can't wait to see what yours becomes.

Holy crap, G! This looks amazing already! I really hope you keep up with this project, I'm dying to see the finished piece.

I agree with Angela the cuckoo clock is beautiful. It has so much detail and beauty to it. I wish more people would make these types of clocks. They are so cool in their own way.
