It seems like the winter is when I pull out the felt and embroidery floss and sit in front of the fire and get to work. I've never been one to sit still long. I need to have something to do with my hands. This is one of the reasons I much prefer to watch a movie at home than in the theaters.....it's too dark in the movie theater to see a crochet or embroidery project. Yes, I do actually watch and keep up with what's going on in a movie or show on my TV, but it's much easier for me to watch and not get antsy if I have something to keep my hands busy.
This beauty is on my Etsy shop as of this morning but I love it so much that I'm going to make another one for my glasses (which I used to only need for driving at night, but now it seems I need them for watching TV and embroidery in low light).
I used whip stitch, blanket stitch, back stitch and running stitch for my embroidery, including the hand cut button hole. I also added some glass beads for the center of the flowers.
I know I say over and over again that doing embroidery with felt is therapeutic but it just IS! I'm always thinking about what I can make next and as soon as a project is finished, I'm almost sad that it's done. But....then I get started on the next one. No wonder I can't sit still!
