A Splash Of Colour




Purple Tree


Hi,
I have managed to add some embroidery brooches to etsy today.
You can find them here.
I think the best way to describe them is stitched paintings, lots of small stitches of different shades blended together.

I have some more to add but the hardest thing for me is to let them go, strange I know but each one is so different, yes the same theme, but each has its own character.
I hope they are like real trees because they are individual, also different in seasons and weather.
Well I may not manage to sell them but I have sold this one above.
Today my daughter has been ill with a flu type virus so a day spent lying on the sofa curled up in her duvet.
I'm hoping the rest of us will not get it, fingers crossed and staying positive!
Hope your having a good week and thanks for visiting.x
P.S Thank you so much Lynn for giving me an award.
Sorry I think I still need to nominate some blogs, I will have a think.

Your trees are lovely...congrats on the sale. I do know the feeling of having it be difficult to let a piece of our art go. I become very attached to mine as well. But I guess if we think of them making someone else happy too...then it's a bit easier to say goodbye to them and leave space for making more... ? maybe?
