Hand work


My shoulder has been bothering me, too much lawn care, so instead of wrestling large pieces in the sewing machine I've been doing a bit of hand work.

I started this piece tonight by needle felting various fibers using the Janome Expression, and now I've plans to do a bunch of stitching to the surface. This pic is the inspiration a red velvet spider mite on some moss. I took this photo last Sunday when we were out looking for morels in the woods.

Hey! I am a little confused what you mean by getting the wallpaper behind the blocks of color? I probably did it unintentionally because I am not very good at the layouts of my blogs! But I will be more than happy to let you know if you can explain a little more about what it is :)

So sorry I missed that earlier, now I understand. This layout was a pre-made one from pyzam.com. I wish I could be of more help, but I couldn't begin to tell you how to add your own background. I am sorry :( Good luck though!
