My first primitive angel doll

I love her and enjoyed so much creating it!!
I created my own pattern and just guessed and tried for making the different body parts and face details.  The best thing about it is that every step of the process of creating it is really enjoyable : designing, sewing, grunging, heating… The only part where I really struggled was the making of the dress. I know I will have to learn more about this process 🙂

Now, I am planning on finding a way to make a frame box to display it and have it in my sewing room.

I bet she is the first of a long series of primitive looking dolls (well, there’s already a black chicken just out of the oven and almost ready to join her!).

Framed embroidery

I have been looking at working on different framing for a while. Although I really like the round shape of the embroidery hoops, sometimes I can’t help feeling limited by it.  Some ideas work really better in a square or a rectangle shaped frame…

So I have already shared with you my first creation (the little house in the fields, see previous post) and here is my second one : “A windy day” and it is a diptych.  My first artistic love is definitely photography and I really enjoy the possibility to integrate a few ideas I love to work with as a photographer in my embroideries.

The girl has been machine embroidered (free motion drawing) and the piece of fabric is a dark blue Fairford Liberty fabric.

House, colours and frame

Hi there 🙂

I have been busy this last week working on my first custom order! I am really happy to have been picked up to create something special but I must admit it is also quite stressful lol 🙂 The pressure of making something really perfect is big  and I have been making, unmaking and remaking a lot!!! But still, it is a very great experience and I can’t wait to have a feedback from my customer!

In between two creations for my customer, I couldn’t help make something else, to relax a bit from the stress previously mentioned 🙂  I have focused on adding lots of colours and patterns and for the first time, I have framed my creation!
I really like how happy and colourful the artwork is (especially with the bad weather we are having in here at the moment..) and it looks really gorgeous in its white frame.

So here it is – and yes, it is another house! ,)

Happy week end every one 🙂

Free motion embroidery : the house in the fields

I so wish I could live in a little house like this! 

Lost in the fields, tomatoes slowly growing in the sun, a little tree to read a book in the shade. Of course, there is ivy on the walls and clothes drying on the line, dancing gently with the wind.
