Slow progress

It has been slow going with this tea pot & the work I need to do in the Alchemy class. Life has been very complicated over the past few months & My creative time has suffered because of it.

We had to move from our old house as the owner wanted to sell. We are now moved & slowly settling back into a sort of normal life☺

I spent all day this Sunday just gone stitching on my tea pot & here are the reasults.

At first I was not happy with the owl in the tree. It looked too much like a monkey. But after some careful tweaking. I am now happy with it.
I still have a bit of stitching that needs doing on this section. Then I have the other two sides to tackle. All in good time. For now I am just enjoying the journey☺

There still has been no more progress on my Embroider Embellish & create piece either☹ I am hoping to do a bit more on that soon. Then starting on May 6th, I am doing another of Karen's amazing classes. This one is called Lace. For more details on this class you can visit her blog at:
Just click on the link, Lace. A surface to embroider on.

Happy stitching everyone

Hi Elizabeth, I love your embroidered teapot, the owl looks nothing like a monkey! Thank you for your comment on my zigzag calligraphy tag. I bought my owl usb stick on e-bay £6.99 - look for:4GB 4G Crystal Owl Pendent USB Flash Drive Thumb Pen Memory Stick U-Disk Gold. I hope you find one, Jane xx
