fishes and birds



sorry for the awful picture. ive been trying to snap the cross-stitch which i sewed a number of years ago. i love the simple colour, the fishes gradually turn into birds. the haberdashers daughter completed the same piece of work, i saw it in my local haberdashers and knew that i had to stitch it. they framed the work too. ive been sorting through my projects, wondering what to do with them. i cant bear to part with them, the work that was involved, i remember what i was doing at certain times, with each stitch. im sure i will post more in the weeks to come.

Hi Em, such a clever design; and neatly executed. The snap's OK. I loved this piece as soon as it came onscreen :)

You are so talented, this deserves a place of prominence in your home.

Hi Em,

I love illusions like this. It is brilliantly done.

Those pics in the last post are great. The top one looks like Pacman has taken a bite out of the centre. I've never heard of the Ballard of Peckham Rye- must now go and google.

All the best

Lovely work Em. Don't get rid of your pieces - can't you frame them and hang them along a wall? One wall can hold an awful lot of framed pieces, especially if the frames kind of go together....I think it would look great. Homemade work is really special these days...
