Embroidery finishes!

I’ve been working on some African Folklore Embroideries on off for the last five or so months… Somehow they all they came together in the past few days. Some are still just embroideries until I decide what to do with them…

First is the topiary, complete with sequin leaves.

I will be vending at naperville quilts! 2013 in 2 days… I am expecting a Priority Mail package tomorrow with lots of kits and threads to sell. I’ll also be giving an embroidery demo on Saturday. I hope there will be lots of familiar faces in the crowd.
