Today I am sharing some pics of the embroidery that I did recently.
This piece was done for a friend who is an ardent Christian and a very good person.
This design was taken from WWW.NEEDLENTHREAD.COM website by Mary Corbett.
The website is a treasure for people who love embroidery. She shares many free designs and lots of video tutorials for stitches.
I am not good at long and short embroidery and this is my first big sample on that.I have tried small flowers on it but this one was tough for me as I had to cover large spaces and it has not come out well in the middle part.Rest is ok. The leaves are stitched in Slanted satin stitch.
The flower and the bud are in long and short stitch.
Have a look and post your comments.
I welcome everyone to my blog world.
This will be my first post. So to start with a nice feeling, I am including a small poem. This poem was written by Kent and was popularized by Mother Theresa.
It was said, that this poem adorned the wall of her Charity Home in Calcutta.
People are often unreasonable,
illogical and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind,
People may accuse you
of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be Kind anyway.
If you are successful,
you will win some false friends and
some true enemies;
Succeed anyway. people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building,
someone could destroy overnight;
If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis.
it is between you and God;
It is never between you and them anyway.
Have a nice Weekend.
